Emergency http://www.wfp.org/photos/gallery/1212-km-upstream-african-rivers The Central African Republic is a landlocked country, and so far the only route for food commodities was the road going from the border with Cameroon to Bangui, the capital. With the congestion in the port of Douala, in Cameroon, the roads in very bad condition, the shortage of trucks and drivers, the insecurity and the rainy season, WFP has long tried to find another way to bring in food commodities.  In August, 1800 tons of rice were loaded on a river convoy in Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and navigated upstream to Bangui: over 1200 km on the river.
