(A) Highlights

(a) WFP provided immediate food assistance following heavy flooding in various provinces in central, northern and eastern Afghanistan.

(b) As a consequence of growing insecurity, food assistance in DRC's Ituri district, during 7 days, had to be kept to a minimum.

(c) Heavy rains in South Sudan rendered inaccessible all locations in Bahr El Ghazal and major parts of the Nuba Mountains and Lakes. Despite the availability of a significant quantity of WFP pre-positioned food in those areas, WFP is becoming increasingly reliant on air transport capacity, which, itself, continues to be affected by fuel shortages.

(d) Despite continuing security incidents which directly affect WFP operations, WFP for July is targeting more than 2.6 million beneficiaries with over 53,275 tons in Sudan's Darfur region. WFP estimates that the number of people requiring WFP food assistance in the region will rise to a peak of 3.25 million people from August to October.

(e) In response to home demolitions in Zimbabwe, WFP has provided 300 tons of food to assist the estimated 270,000 urban dwellers countrywide who have lost their homes.

(f) WFP provided emergency food aid to conflict affected people in El Alto, Bolivia.
