WFP is now providing monthly food rations to flood‐affected communities in 24 districts, supported by nearly 30 NGO partners. Food stocks continue to be pre‐positioned at key operational hubs to service the highest need areas. This month, a limited food basket consisting of wheat, flour, oil and high energy biscuits is being distributed. Additional funding is urgently required to scale‐up the response as planned in September to reach up to 6 million beneficiaries with a complete 8‐commodity food basket.
WFP is also providing logistics and emergency telecommunications support to the humanitarian community working in affected provinces, including coordinating the movement of relief cargo on government aircraft.
