STORYLINE:

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said it is responding to the urgent food needs of almost 100,000 people arriving in the Cox’s Bazar district of Bangladesh as they flee violence in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

An estimated 400,000 people have crossed the border into Bangladesh. WFP is especially concerned about the health of women and children arriving hungry and malnourished. Nearly 3,500 pregnant women, new mothers and children under the age of five have received a special, high-nutrient porridge made of wheat and soya flour.

David Beasley, Executive Director of the WFP said "we're talking about 20 to 25,000 people per day fleeing for their lives, crossing the border into Bangladesh. We're scaling up from 25 / 35,000 people to 400,000 people and we're talking about even more - so we're on the ground getting it done."

Since 27 August, WFP has provided more than 83,500 people with high-energy biscuits as they arrive seeking shelter in already overcrowded settlements in Cox’s Bazar. Around 95,000 people have received warm meals – khichuri, a kind of rice and lentil porridge – through community kitchens operated by Action Contre la Faim, where WFP provides rice. These kitchens continue to provide meals for about 5,300 people per day.

WFP needs at least $US 14.8 million to scale up assistance to those seeking shelter in the camps for the next four months. The financial needs may increase as the number of people needing assistance increases.
