CARE has scaled up its emergency distributions of food and emergency supplies to people in crisis-stricken Tajikistan with new funding from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID). A severe energy crisis combined with the harshest winter in 30 years has left millions of people in Tajikistan facing food and fuel shortages. With USD 429,000 from USAID and USD 230,000 from DFID, CARE is providing food, warm clothing, coal, generators and fuel, and medicine to more than 35,000 people over the next month. (CARE)
