STORYLINE:

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) said today it would scale up food distributions in conflict-wracked Central African Republic (CAR) to assist up to 1.25 million people in the next eight months as growing numbers of people go hungry.

WFP appealed for nearly US$107 million through August 2014 to assist both hundreds of thousands of displaced people and others whose food security is disrupted by violence.

In December, WFP and its partners have assisted more than 237,000 people in CAR. In total, food was provided to over 174,000 people in Bangui, 41,500 people in Bossangoa and 21,500 people in Bouar.

WFP plans to increase food distributions in 2014, as well as to provide supplementary feeding to combat malnutrition among children under five and assistance to vulnerable groups.

From May to August, it will also reach more people in need of food during the lean season when the last harvest runs out.

Earlier in December, WFP launched a special operation to deploy more staff, set up local offices, obtain vital security and telecommunications equipment and support establishing cross-border humanitarian flights into CAR at a cost of US$5.3 million through June 2014.
