In Brief: WFP refocusing its work in Afghanistan

Published on 01 July 2011

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is being forced by a funding shortfall to cut its recovery programmes in nearly half of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces, a spokesperson said. “We are having to refocus our activities to continue supporting those who are most in need, especially in provinces that have the largest number of people who are either very highly food insecure or very food insecure,” WFP spokesperson Challiss McDonough told IRIN.
