    New Data Shows Doubling of Life Threatening Malnutrition Among Rohingya Refugee Children in Bangladesh (For the Media)

    A new survey shows that the malnutrition rates in Kutupalong are alarming. The preliminary findings indicate one in four Rohinyga children are suffering from malnutrition. WFP is providing nutritional support to women and young children, many of whom were already malnourished before arriving in Bangladesh. They receive Super Cereal Plus, a kind of nutritious porridge. WFP urgently needs US$77 million to support one million people in the Cox’s Bazar region of Bangladesh, including the new arrivals and people who were already living in camps near the border and host communities.

    WFP Warns That Urgent Funding is Needed to Avert Humanitarian Catastrophe in the Kasai Region of D.R. Congo (For the Media)

    With 3.2 million people severely hungry in the conflict-ravaged Greater Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), WFP is ramping up emergency assistance to avert a humanitarian catastrophe. We plan to reach almost half a million people by end-December and accelerate the surge at the start of 2018. In the worst-off communities, nine out of ten people are hungry – one in two severely so. Acute malnutrition is well above the 10% emergency threshold. Many people eat little more than a meal a day, poor in protein, vitamins and minerals (typically just cassava root and leaves).
