Cambodia, Oddar Mean Chey province. 8 December 2017.  The Kingdom of Cambodia in Southeast Asia saw the effects of brutal conflict and civil unrest which afflicted the country from 1975 to 1991. This caused the deaths of up to three million people and paused economic development. When it was over, the country had to start from scratch.  Primary school completion and secondary school enrolment rates in the country are low. To support universal access to eduction, WFP has been providing nutritious school meals to Cambodian pre- and primary school children in rural and food- insecure communities since 2008 We also run programmes offering take-home cash or rice in exchange for at least 80 percent school attendance. To help diversify diets and educate future generations about nutrition, we are establishing school gardens and shifting to Home Grown School Feeding, which allows local smallholder farmers to sell their produce to nearby schools.

Vanuatu, Aniwa, 26 March 2015  Tropical Cyclone Pam wiped out homes, destroyed crops and flattened islands in its path. This Category 5 cyclone was the strongest in Vanuatu’s recorded history and now over half of the population is estimated to need immediate humanitarian assistance. Extensive damage to crops and livelihoods has left families reliant on subsistence farming and in urgent need of food assistance that meets their daily nutrition intake and gives them the energy source needed to rebuild their homes and lives over the next several weeks. 
 WFP RESPONSE WFP is supporting the government-led response to more than 160,000 people who are in urgent need of lifesaving supplies of food, clean water and shelter. WFP is supplementing food packages with rice and high-energy biscuits. These biscuits have been fortified with extra vitamins and minerals, and do not need to be cooked. They are being distributed in areas with limited clean water. 
 By boat, plane or helicopter, high-energy biscuits have been sent to families who need them most.  INTERNATIONAL EFFORT WFP and the international community are working closely to support the government of Vanuatu’s response efforts with stand-by equipment such as generators to help with the relief efforts in key areas such as logistics and communications. France, Australia and New Zealand are helping the international community transport food and other vital supplies to remote communities in the cyclone-affected islands. Australia generously airlifted 39 metric tonnes of these biscuits to Port Vila, and continues to help transport them around the affected islands.
WFP’s emergency equipment was flown from the UN Humanitarian Response Depots in Dubai and Malaysia on board planes generously provided by the United Arab Emirates. 
 The government’s food packages include a two-week supply of rice, canned meat and fish, and noodles. Going forward, WFP plans to assist the most vulnerable until they can provide for themselves again.  Food packages have reached all 22 cyclone-affected islands, and distributions are ongoing.
