Summary: 

The United Nations World Food Programme – WFP – is airlifting tonnes of rice and cereal as many roads are dangerous and unpassable and are destined to become even more so as the rainy season approaches. Vatican Radio’s Linda Bordoni spoke to WFP spokesperson Frances Kennedy who explains that although the ongoing violence is a challenge for staff and partners on the ground, a programme is in place to move in enough food for 1.25 million people affected by violence.
