    New WFP Video Highlights the Continued Risk of Famine in Nigeria (For the Media)

    WFP urgently needs US$172 million for its operations as the lean season hits northeastern Nigeria, driving up food prices, depleting the meagre resources of millions of people affected by conflict and intensifying hunger.  The crisis risks worsening as torrential rains make roads impassable, cutting off food assistance to the neediest and most remote places.
