Myanmar- The World Food Program and its partner organizations announced on May 31 that they have supported over 200,000 victims of the Mocha cyclone with food.
Currently, as the support for food and rations is decreasing, international support is urgently needed, as said by Mr. Stephen, a permanent representative to Myanmar for WFP, in the announcement.
“We, WEP, and its partner organizations are trying to urgently deliver food and rations to anyone from anywhere who is in need of food. As a result, our supply is decreasing, and we are in need of international support.”
WFP said the cyclone-affected regions are mainly in need of food, shelter, clean water for drinking and daily use, and cleanliness.
It was mentioned in the announcement that WFP is trying to support the emergency food supply and money for three months for 800,000 local people from cyclone-affected regions.
WFP is finding funds of $ 60,000,000 to support emergency food supply and nutrition for 2,100,000 people around the country until the end of 2023.
Among the needed funds of US $ 60,000,000, US $ 23,000,000 for 440,000 cyclone-affected people was included. In case the necessary funds are not accessible, WFP programs for living savings could be stopped in August 2023.
