Abstract:  
As of 20 May, with support from the local government and partners, WFP has distributed food to approximately 1.6 million beneficiaries living in seven of the most heavily affected districts: Gorkha, Dhading, Nuwakot, Rasuwa, Sindhupalchok, Kavre, and Dolakha. The window of opportunity—just weeks before the onset of the monsoon season—to deliver life-saving food, shelter and medical supplies is closing rapidly for people living high up in the mountains with no road access. Once the monsoon rains begin, access to the high-lying villages will be seriously curtailed. To reach people living in the most remote locations, WFP has developed a five-tiered strategy—‘Operation Mountain Express’. This includes using up to 20,000 porters and elite mountaineers to establish a common logistics supply chain. As the lead UN agency for logistics, WFP continues to provide essential logistics and transport services to facilitate the delivery of food and relief items on behalf of the entire humanitarian community. Since launching its emergency response, WFP has received generous contributions from a number of donors, including Canada, Denmark, Germany, Japan, Liechtenstein, United Kingdom, United States, UN CERF and the private sector. However, the overall response remains critically under resourced. The emergency operation is just 9 percent resourced. The Special Operation for Logistics Augmentation is similarly under-resourced at 18 percent. With the ever-increasing need for air capacity the Special Operation for the UN Humanitarian Air Service (UNHAS) remains a vital element of the common humanitarian response.
