Summary: 

February 18 - In response to the growing needs of affected population for them to move on and recover their livelihoods, the World Food Program will transition its operation away from being focused on relief food and nutrition to become more effective in supporting early recovery and rebuilding efforts. Ms. Cornelia Paetz, the WFP Information Officer in Tacloban said that to address recovery needs, WFP will now shift assistance to support communities on the road to recovery. “Our goal is to lay the groundwork for long term food security and good nutrition to increase resilience to future disasters,” Ms. Paetz said.
