As the number of people affected by the Ebola virus spirals in West Africa, the UN Food agency (WFP) is sending in more than just food.

WFP has teamed up with the UN Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER) to better respond to the crisis in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The agency is providing logistical support by flying in aid workers, fixing air strips and building warehouses.

Patrick Maigua asked WFP's Elisabeth Byrs about the support the agency is providing.
