Lord Bates:The Department for International Development is assisting households affected by drought in Eastern Rwanda through our pre-existing agricultural support programme. Our social protection programme also provides direct support to the most vulnerable people in Rwanda, including those affected by the drought. We will continue to engage with the Government of Rwanda and other partners to monitor the food security situation in Eastern Rwanda and assess if further support is required.
