Project Name: Provision of Chicken Feed to ensure Food Security in Libya
Project Description:

February 2011, the people of Libya began protesting against the Muammar Gaddafi-led Government of Libya. As unrest rapidly spread throughout the country, Libyan security forces under the authority of the Muammar Gaddafi-led government began responding to protesting crowds with increasing violence. Due the conflict, the supply chain for chicken feed previously provided by western Libya has been disrupted, causing suppliers to cull chickens and destroy eggs viable for hatching in order to maintain their breeding supply with the feed currently in their stores.

TaiwanICDF and Mercy Corps help shore up the chicken feed supply chain by renting trucks in Benghazi which will travel to Cairo, Egypt, pick up 125 tons of feed and return. The feed will keep the existing breeders working for approximately 4 weeks to find out a sustainable solution, avoiding disruption to this crucial market item.
