WFP aid flights to proceed to Myanmar tomorrow

Statement by Nancy E. Roman, Director of Public Policy and Communications:

“The World Food Programme has decided to send in two relief flights as planned tomorrow, while discussions continue with the Government of Myanmar on the distribution of the food that was flown in today, and not released to WFP. Today, two WFP flights arrived with high-energy biscuits, sufficient to feed 95,000 hungry people in Myanmar”.

“Yesterday, WFP airlifted enough high energy biscuits for 21,000 people, most of which has been delivered over the last 24 hours to the hardest-hit areas.”
