The Gambia, Banjul, October 2012  The UN World Food Programme (WFP) received a donation of 5,000 metric tons of rice from the Government of Brazil towards its emergency operations in the Gambia. This donation will provide vital food and nutritional assistance to over 200,000 people, including children under the age of five, who are at risk of food insecurity and malnutrition as a result of the 2011 crop failure.

The UN agency provides general food distributions of rice and oil to the most affected households. It also provides -- through a supplementary feeding programme to over 37,000 children under five -- Super Cereal, a fortified blend of cereal to make a nutritious porridge and oil, to help prevent malnutrition and weight loss.

The Gambia, Banjul, October 2012  The UN World Food Programme (WFP) received a donation of 5,000 metric tons of rice from the Government of Brazil towards its emergency operations in the Gambia. This donation will provide vital food and nutritional assistance to over 200,000 people, including children under the age of five, who are at risk of food insecurity and malnutrition as a result of the 2011 crop failure. The European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection Department (ECHO) has covered the shipment of the donation and associated costs. “The importance of donors’ and partners’ support at difficult times like these cannot be over- emphasized, said WFP Gambia Country Director, Vitoria Ginja. “Thanks to this contribution, WFP will provide more than 160,000 bags of rice that will meet the needs of up to 206,000 vulnerable people in the 19 most affected districts of the country for two months.” WFP is currently engaged in two food and nutrition support operations in the Gambia. The UN agency provides general food distributions of rice and oil to the most affected households. It also provides -- through a supplementary feeding programme to over 37,000 children under five -- Super Cereal, a fortified blend of cereal to make a nutritious porridge and oil, to help prevent malnutrition and weight loss. Other beneficiaries include pregnant women, nursing mothers and well as people living with HIV/AIDS and TB.
