WFP Expands Nepal Operations To Reach 2.5 Million Hungry
PDF File Size: 18 KB | Download   
The UN World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal announced today plans to expand operations to feed 2.5 million people in the country, doubling existing efforts to reach hungry people who are struggling with the compounded effects of high food prices, the 10-year conflict, and drought. Approximately half of those in need will be covered under WFP’s existing programme targeting 1.2 million people struggling to recover from conflict, an onslaught of natural disasters and who now face the additional burden of high food prices. Under the expanded operation, an additional 1.3 million will receive food assistance, and a minimum of 31 districts will be covered. As a first priority, WFP has expanded operations to protect the lives and nutritional status of the most vulnerable by providing immediate food assistance through food for work or cash for work activities. These activities will create assets and generate income that will improve people's ability to cope with rising food prices both in the short and medium-term.
