According to the Director of WB Operations for Angola, Cameroon, Gabon, Equatorial Guinea and Sao Tome and Principe, Abdoulaye Seck, who spoke to the press at the end of a meeting with the State Minister for Social Affairs, Carolina Cerqueira, it is necessary to identify the most vulnerable families and to be able to help at crucial times, during crisis and lack of resources.

In this regard, he expressed satisfaction that the Government is paying special attention to the population affected by the drought in the southern country, specifically in the provinces of Namibe, Huíla and Cunene, with 857,443 people experiencing the effects of drought and one million and 100 cattle at risk of death, hunger or headquarters.

In order to help Angola, the World Bank approved the financing of three executive structuring initiatives, namely the project to strengthen the Social Protection System (US $ 320 million), the Budget Support operation (US $ 500 million) of dollars) and the Bita Project (Energy and Water) - 500 million dollars.

The World Bank is a multilateral institution that, in partnership with the Government, has been supporting, in financial and technical assistance, various sectors, with a view to strengthening the capacities of the State and the private sector.
