Support for Soup Kitchens and Mobile Medical Teams: USAID/Armenia plans to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) and fund a 5-year (a 2-year base period and a 3-year option period) Cooperative Agreement with a total estimated cost in the range of $10 - 12 million for the implementation of Support for Soup Kitchens and Mobile Medical Teams Program. USAID/Armenia plans to award to locally registered non-governmental organizations to carry out a direct assistance program that has two components: (1) soup kitchens for the elderly, and (2) mobile medical teams for hard-to-reach, remote areas. These activities will target the country s most vulnerable populations and will be implemented by local organizations. (1) The goal of the soup kitchen component is to address the immediate nutritional needs of Armenia s most vulnerable elderly population. USAID partners are currently operating 24 soup kitchens serving approximately 3,150 elderly beneficiaries in 5 regions. Hot meals are provided at each site to qualifying participants: 1 hot meal per day, 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year. Under this RFA, USAID would like to increase the number of beneficiaries by approximately one-third, from the current 3,150 to a total of 4,500 beneficiaries by September 2005. (2) The goal of the Mobile Medical Teams (MMTs) is to provide first-level, basic health care to hard-to-reach populations. MMTs conduct consultations for diagnosis, treatment and/or referral for common diseases in Armenia. Under this RFA, a heightened emphasis is placed on improving the nutritional status of infants and pregnant and lactating women. MMTs must be comprised of licensed, qualified health providers and professionals who together are capable of carrying out the required services.
