The United States, through USAID’s Office of Food for Peace, has provided $1.8 million dollars to the UN World Food Programme (WFP) in Nepal to feed more than 108,000 Bhutanese refugees living in camps in Eastern Nepal. The in-kind donation of 2,640 metric tons of commodities such as rice, lentils, chickpeas, and vegetable oil will provide up to two months of rations for the refugees. Since 1992, WFP has been providing essential food aid to the Bhutanese refugees at the request of the
Government of Nepal and in close coordination with the UN refugee agency, UNHCR.
In addition to providing essential food items, WFP provides vitamin-fortified food to 3,000 pregnant and lactating women and young children.WFP also supports income generating activities aimed at improving the livelihoods of refugees as well as
vocational training programs that assist refugees in becoming self-sufficient once durable solutions are found.
