    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).
