US Team Visits WFP’S Emergency Food Aid Operations In Midwestern Nepal
PDF File Size: 29 KB | Download   
An eight member team of representatives from the United States Agency for International Development, visited drought-impacted communities in Humla and Jumla
districts. The United States government has contributed approximately US$2 million of in-kind food to WFP for the first phase of the emergency operation. Another US$250,000 was provided for transportation of food to the most remote, drought-affected communities in Mid- and FarWestern Nepal. The USAID team lead by Assistant Administrator for USAID Michael Hess, observed WFP food aid distributions to people in Humla and Jumla. The team also viewed community works projects such as foot bridges, mule trails and a rehabilitated school built as a part of WFP’s emergency intervention. WFP food aid distributions in Jumla and Humla are a part of the second phase of a US$13.6 million effort to reach over 375,000 people in Mid-and Far-Western Nepal who have been suffering from years of drought and poor crop harvests. Over the next three months, vulnerable families will receive food to help support their needs until the next harvest. The United States remains one of the largest contributors to WFP operations in Nepal which includes support to the Bhutanese refugees and to WFP’s school feeding programme which provides 450,000 girls and boys with hot meals each day.
