WFP URGES RESUMPTION OF FOOD AID DELIVERIES FOR 1 MILLION NEPALESE
PDF File Size: 96 KB | Download   
With road travel severely curtailed, schools shut and major cities under curfew for the last three weeks, the United Nations World Food Programme in Nepal has not been able to deliver critically needed food aid to communities around the country, including to over half a million school children. While more than 100,000 Bhutanese refugees living in eastern Nepal have been receiving supplies
after WFP appealed to all parties to allow safe passage to food convoys travelling to the region, most operations in other parts of Nepal have come to a standstill in the last few weeks. Before this political crisis, WFP was providing food to over one million persons living in severely food insecure areas of the country. “The crisis has put vulnerable communities in danger,” said Anthony Banbury, WFP Regional Director for Asia. “Children have not been fed in schools, mothers and pregnant women have not received nutritional support and communities have not received food to support their poorest
members. We hope that yesterday’s political developments will allow us to quickly resume food deliveries and distributions”. “A solution to the political-security crisis must be consolidated as soon as possible so that the poorest persons of Nepal do not continue to suffer as a result of this crisis,” Banbury continued. “WFP urges all parties to the present crisis to work together to see that these critical food aid programmes and other humanitarian operations can resume, and to work to avert a larger food security crisis.”
