WFP urges donors to support emergency operation

WFP has urged donors to pledge support for an emergency operation for displaced persons in northern Uganda. Food distributions in the IDP camps in Gulu district are temporarily restricted to priority nutritional programmes because of lack of resources for this operation, the agency warned. The WFP emergency operation requires close to 58,000 mt of food for a one-year period for distribution to 347,000 displaced people in need of on-going assistance. WFP is trying to secure loans from other operations to resume full distributions in Gulu. Distributions in the district of Kitgum have been less affected due to remaining food stocks at the location, but replenishments are due immediately.
