In July 2012 WFP resumed its “Nutrition Support to Women and Children in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)” operation, which seeks to combat continued hunger and undernutrition among children and their mothers, and restore and rebuild livelihoods. WFP’s operation targets 2.4 million of the most vulnerable women and children – as well as food insecure families  – in the most food-insecure parts of the country.

Overview

In July 2013, WFP will start a new operation - Nutrition Support to Children and Women in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). As with the previous operation, it will not seek to reduce the food gap in the country, but rather to address the nutrition gap that exists among young children and pregnant and breastfeeding women.

The new operation has a particular focus on the prevention and cure of moderate acute malnutrition among children (6 months – 4 years old) and their mothers.

Overall, WFP’s operation seeks to assist 2.4 million of the most vulnerable women and children, as well as vulnerable families in the most food-insecure parts of the country.
