The U.S. Mission in Nepal, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), will contribute more than $450,000 in food assistance to the UN World Food Programme in Nepal to support existing flood and landslide relief efforts by the Government of Nepal and other humanitarian aid partners. The U.S. contribution will enable the World Food Programme to purchase approximately 450 metric tons of locally and regionally produced rice, legumes and other important food commodities. This will meet the food needs for about 40,000 flood-affected individuals in the most severely flooded districts of Bardiya, Banke, Kailali, Surkhet and Dang for just over a month. The UN World Food Programme in Nepal will work under the Government of Nepal’s District Disaster Response Committee and with the Nepal Red Cross Society to ensure that distributions are delivered in a timely fashion to the most needy.
