The World Food Programme (WFP) is scaling up food distribution to more than one million people in the Central African Republic.

The UN agency says it urgently needs $107 million to support its work through August 2014.

Despite the ongoing conflict in the country, WFP and its partners have reached more than 230,000 displaced people in the past weeks, including in the capital, Bangui, and the northwestern city of Bossangoa.

UN Radio's Patrick Maigua in Geneva discusses WFP's operations in the Central African Republic with agency spokesperson Elizabeth Byrs.
