American philanthropist Howard G. Buffett visited WFP's operations in Democratic Republic of Congo's North Kivu province in December, where tens of thousands of people have fled the latest bout of unrest sweeping the region. WFP reached out to them, distributing 15-day food rations to roughly 160,000 conflict-displaced people in the region. A long-time supporter of WFP, the Howard G. Buffett foundation has donated $1 million to help those returning home pick up their lives.
