Increased food aid needs in Kinshasa

WFP has increased the number of targeted food aid beneficiaries in Kinshasa due to the general deterioration of the economic and financial situation in the city, which has dramatically reduced vulnerable people’s access to basic food supplies, WFP said in its latest weekly emergency report. Its target for March is now 52,000 beneficiaries, up from 34,800.

Meanwhile, WFP and its partners have identified some 19,000 displaced persons and 1,420 malnourished children in need of relief assistance in Goma, the report said.
