In a document made available to the partners, the three levels of execution of the plan are stated, with specification that it targets displaced people who are scattered all over, displaced people living in host families and refugees. The first intervention, the document stated, concerns food aid, material of basic necessity such as blankets and mattresses, hygiene materials that include soap, towels, toilet tissue, tooth brushes and tooth paste.

The committee also intends to intervene in the reconstruction of houses that will be done by the Military Engineering Corps.
