"food consumption": 632 results 

 
Lebanon, Beirut, 27 June 2018  Fadwa still lives in a makeshift shelter in the corner of a car park in Beirut. In January, it was leaking and cold. Now the air doesn’t circulate and it’s unbearably muggy. Cars race past one side of the structure and her children scoot around on broken bikes in the car park. It’s still inadequate and hazardous, yet Fadwa is smiling.  Back in January, she had to go to the market everyday to buy food because there was nowhere to store it. Now she has a fridge — it’s her biggest purchase this year. By saving some of her cash and adding more from her husband’s income, Fadwa was able to save enough money to buy a second-hand fridge. She is now able to buy and store a wider range of fresh food, thanks to support provided by the United Kingdom.  During its most recent assessment, WFP found a 13 percent increase (up to 74 percent) in the number of families with an acceptable food consumption score. That score is an index measurement of the range of food groups eaten by a family.  There are two shelves of brown bottles in the fridge. It is medicine for the children's various ailments. “I always have one sick child,” she explained. Back in January, she had to cut down on food in order to afford medicine. Now she has both.  Being able to choose where to spent limited funds is a huge improvement for Fadwa and the core component of WFP’s multi-purpose cash programme. With the monthly US$27 (£20) that each member of the family receives plus a US$175 (£130) top up, Fadwa is taking charge of meeting the family’s needs for the first time since they left Syria.  The multi-purpose cash programme which is largely funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), gives recipients the autonomy to decide where and how to spend their humanitarian assistance.  When we last met Fadwa, she told us that food is her first priority. WFP learned the same of other families receiving multi-purpose cash in Lebanon. 91 percent of families receiving it prioritised food.  Fadwa always knew where to find the best deals with the help of a network of friends and family spread around Beirut. They keep in touch by WhatsApp, sharing updates from Syria as well as tips on where to find the best deals around town. Now with a couple of dollars each month, she is able to keep that link open with home.  A bit of extra cash reserved for tutoring costs has also been freed up now that the summer vacation started. Four of the five children are in school and 14-year-old Moutaz was receiving private lessons. Since he caught up with his class and passed his English exam this semester, they are no longer paying for the teacher. As well as giving Moutaz something to be proud of, the family now has a bit more cash to save for whatever tomorrow brings.  “There’s always a bill for something,” Fadwa explained, “but now I can pay them.”  The family is getting by and is appreciative for the extra help from the United Kingdom. When asked, 98 percent of all families said they prefer receiving cash over other forms of assistance. But life is still exhausting Fadwa admits and she’s longing for a change.  “I used to dream about surviving, but now we’re fine. Now I dream of leaving this place and of having just one day at home in Deir Ezzor, but I heard our house was destroyed and there’s nothing to go back to. I used to have a garden with trees but now I live in a car park.”  The United Kingdom’s support is nourishing Fadwa’s hope of a return and keeping her going until then. Whilst it appears on the surface that not much has changed, there are enough subtle changes to her family’s life to suggest otherwise.  Photo: WFP/Edward Johnson

Nigeria, Pulka, 20 July 2017
 The lean season is pushing up already alarming rates of hunger and malnutrition across northeastern Nigeria, with roughly 5.2 million people currently facing extreme hunger. This is the planting season, but the Boko Haram insurgency has displaced more than two million people and prevented farmers from accessing their fields.  Since May 2015, the World Food Programme (WFP) has supported national and state emergency agencies as well as humanitarian partners to assist people displaced by Boko Haram violence and since 2016, WFP has been responding to the food security needs caused by the conflict in Northern-Eastern Nigeria. To restore livelihoods, WFP has launched in collaboration with FAO an integrated two-fold approach which combines emergency food assistance with support to smallholder agriculture production (seeds and tools).   The ongoing trend of refugee returns from Cameroon, Niger, and Chad has put increased pressure on the existing displacement situation in the bordering towns of Banki, Gamboru, Ngala, Damasak, and Pulka. The prevalence of poor food consumption is relatively high among newly arrived households and those not receiving food assistance in eastern Borno State.

 The lean season is pushing up already alarming rates of hunger and malnutrition across northeastern Nigeria, with roughly 5.2 million people currently facing extreme hunger. This is the planting season, but the Boko Haram insurgency has displaced more than two million people and prevented farmers from accessing their fields.  Since May 2015, the World Food Programme (WFP) has supported national and state emergency agencies as well as humanitarian partners to assist people displaced by Boko Haram violence and since 2016, WFP has been responding to the food security needs caused by the conflict in Northern-Eastern Nigeria. To restore livelihoods, WFP has launched in collaboration with FAO an integrated two-fold approach which combines emergency food assistance with support to smallholder agriculture production (seeds and tools).   The ongoing trend of refugee returns from Cameroon, Niger, and Chad has put increased pressure on the existing displacement situation in the bordering towns of Banki, Gamboru, Ngala, Damasak, and Pulka. The prevalence of poor food consumption is relatively high among newly arrived households and those not receiving food assistance in eastern Borno State.
