Highlights

  • WFP urgently requires US$107 million for the next six months to meet the needs of all refugees in Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan.

Shortfalls may require WFP to implement ration cuts and stop selected activities such as school meals and blanket supplementary feeding, in order to prioritize assistance for new arrivals. This will have a negative impact on the nutrition situation of beneficiaries.
