    Despite Security Challenges, Humanitarian Efforts are Having a Positive Effect on Extreme Hunger in Boko Haram Affected Areas of Nigeria (For the Media)

    In 2017, the World Food Programme and partners, under the leadership of the Nigerian government, managed to stave off famine in three conflict affected northeastern states. New data shows that the situation for extremely vulnerable families, while still very fragile, has improved further in the past six months due to sustained humanitarian assistance. WFP, however, remains concerned about the situation for families in areas that humanitarian assistance remains inaccessible due to insecurity. As of March, 2.3 million people people will need some form of food assistance in the three states of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe in Nigeria’s northeast.

    As Refugees from Myanmar Continue to Arrive in Bangladesh Camps, WFP Prepares for Imminent Monsoon Season (For the Media)

    Kutupalong is fast becoming the biggest refugee camp in the world. Improved site management and infrastructure support is critical ahead of the monsoon season when rains and landslides pose a risk. WFP is supporting the engineering and site management operations of the “mega camp” by bringing in additional engineers, supporting road construction, and monsoon preparedness. WFP provides micronutrient-fortified biscuits when people first arrive; then after registration, we conduct regular distributions of rice, vegetable oil and lentils; hot meals through community kitchens; and nutritious porridge for pregnant women, breast-feeding mothers and children under five years old.
