    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.

    2017 A Year of Unprecedented Humanitarian Emergencies (For the Media)

    In 2017, we saw progress in defeating global hunger being reversed, as record numbers of people have fled their homes to escape fighting. Out of the 815 million hungry people on the planet, 489 million live in countries affected by conflict. It’s been a challenging year with an unprecedented number of hunger emergencies, almost all driven by conflict. Four countries stared famine in the face, and in one country, South Sudan, famine was declared in February in two counties. It was beaten back by a massive, sustained humanitarian response and improved access but there is still a risk that famine could appear in other locations.  WFP is on the ground and in the air, doing whatever it takes to reach people in some of the most remote places on earth.
