An aid worker for the Danish Refugee Council, one of WFP's partners in this operation, explains to a group of displaced people what food WFP will be distributing to people here at the Don Bosco church compound near Bangui. Over 2,000 families are receiving WFP emergency food aid at this site.

Since mid-February WFP provides extra children rations (Plumpy Sup, Plumpy Doz, Super Cereals Plus) in general food distributions so kids fight malnutrition and keep smiling.

People living at the Don Bosco camp had not received food aid from WFP since early January because of problems getting supplies into CAR. Thanks to the recent airlift and three convoys arriving by road from Cameroon, WFP has been able to start a new cycle of distributions in several IDP sites in the capital.
