BUJUMBURA, November 15th (ABP) – A delegation from the Permanent Executive Secretariat of the Multisectoral Food Security and Nutrition Platform (SEP/PMSAN) provided last week with work equipment consisting of a computer and its accessories, a printer and a flash disk, to the provincial food security and nutrition platform in Bujumbura (western Burundi), to help it accomplish the tasks entrusted to it.
That delegation was led by Mrs. Boussessia Kezimana, responsible for social security at SEP/PMSAN, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.
Mrs. Kezimana indicated that it was a donation from the SEP/PMSAN attached to the Prime Minister’s Office, provided by the World Food Program (WFP). She added that this trip is part of their activities to coordinate the activities of the provincial food security platform to see if the latter is working, in order to listen to their grievances and find solutions together.
The governor of Bujumbura, Mr. Désiré Nsengiyumva thanked the national platform delegation for what it had just done.
Speaking about work, Mr. Nsengiyumva said meetings were held. We are in the process of making a list of people who suffer from malnutrition in order to create a database for treatment, he added. He pointed out that Mutimbuzi and Kabezi communes have many people suffering from malnutrition. It is in that context that the Bujumbura provincial governor pleaded for his province to be prioritized when assigning stakeholders in that sector.
Reacting to those remarks, Mrs. Kezimana suggested to the provincial food security and nutrition platform of Bujumbura to draw up an action plan to be carried out and to propose it to those involved in food security and nutrition, so that they can be financed.
