NAIROBI : The World Food Programme warned today that unless donors provide new funding it will be forced to halt emergency airlifts and airdrops of food and other vital supplies to 1.1 million people cut off by floodwaters in remote areas of Kenya and Somalia.

Estimating that it will cost US$12 million to deliver by air an additional 16,000 metric tons of assistance between now and the end of March, WFP called on donors to make pledges immediately to avert the suspension of the air operations at the end of January. This is in addition to funds for food aid.
