As part of a major operation to feed tens of thousands of flood survivors in Nepal, WFP has fed an estimated 8,150 people in the western Banke District.

Battling unpredictable weather conditions, WFP - along with the Nepal Red Cross - has given survivors 30 days’ rations which include rice, lentils and oil.

Landslides

Landslides have blocked some roads but food deliveries are continuing in several harder to reach areas such as Bardiya, Achham and Mugu districts.

WFP has distributed 291 tons of food so far in western Nepal. Some 1,300 tons will be given to flood victims over the next few days.

Operations will continue throughout the week, with all districts receiving food over the next several weeks.
