Food rations in north Korea are at near-starvation levels following 2 years of devastating floods. The government provides 100 grams per person daily (half a bowl of rice), which is 1/6 the ration normally distributed to refugees in other crises. Even at these minimal levels, north Korea is expected to exhaust its food supplies by this summer and has made an urgent appeal to the international community for immediate food aid.
