Summary: 

Ten districts in Malawi — nine in the South and one in the Centre—are expected to receive relief food from WFP following shortages that have hit these areas due to erratic rainfall. The World Food Programme (WFP) and three of the country’s donors have since embarked on a Targeted Food Distribution Support Programme to the Malawi Government to rescue the more than 201,000 people expected to be affected.
