December 22, 2014
In an effort to combat malnutrition, the United States contributed an additional $34 million to the World Food Program (WFP), which will provide food rations for the next four months to 3.2 million Pakistanis, including 1.63 million Temporary Displaced Persons (TDPs) from the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).  This new commitment by the United States will enable the WFP to transform approximately 71,000 metric tons of wheat, donated by the Government of Pakistan, into fortified flour.  The funding will also be used to locally and regionally purchase more than 29,000 tons of food commodities to be distributed in Pakistan.
 
Gregory Gottlieb, United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission Director, said, "The U.S. Government through USAID is helping Pakistan to improve food and nutrition conditions for more than 50 percent of the population, which are most vulnerable to malnutrition in Pakistan.  The United States has a long-standing history and commitment to working together with Pakistan to provide humanitarian assistance and support human and social development."
