    The Executive Director of the U.N. World Food Programme (WFP), David Beasley, arrived in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) for a four-day mission, while the country is facing a humanitarian crisis. Mr. Beasley is assessing the impact of conflict on food security, and the efforts of WFP and other agencies to tackle hunger. On Saturday, he met conflict-displaced families in the Kasai region, where more than 3 million people 1/4 of the population are severely food insecure in the wake of the eruption of violence in mid-2016.

    A Level 3 emergency has been declared in the #Kasai province of the the Democratic Republic of the Congo. There is no higher #emergency level. This means that 9 out of 10 people are lacking food, and 1 in 2 severely so. With #conflict rapidly deepening in the region, many families have have no choice but to flee #violence. WFP is already on the ground and has reached almost 20,000 people impacted. WFP/Jonathan Dumont

    Taking only what they can carry, thousands of people are fleeing violence in #Myanmars northern Rakhine State and seeking shelter in the #Bangladeshi border district of Coxs Bazar. They arrive at the already overcrowded camps, hungry and desperate, looking for somewhere to take shelter or at least to rest. The World Food Programme is giving new arrivals a supply of high-energy biscuits: a kind of cookie enriched with nutrients to cover immediate emergency needs. WFP is also giving a special, high-nutrient porridge made of wheat and soya flour to malnourished women who are breastfeeding or pregnant, and to children under the age of five. WFP/Saikat Mojumder
