Philippines, 17 September 2018  In response to Typhoon Ompong, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) is supporting the Philippine Government’s emergency response operations. Below are a few points on WFP's support to complement the National Government's operations:   - WFP is transporting 20,000 bags of rice for family food rations being packed for the typhoon-affected populations. The rice is transported from the National Food Authority in Valenzuela to the DSWD National Resource Operations Center.   - WFP will also participate in the Government’s post-typhoon assessments in Region 2 and CAR, where WFP will be assessing the food security in both regions.   WFP’s support to the Philippine Government’s emergency response is made possible through the contribution of the United States Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.

Bangladesh, Ukhiya, Cox’s Bazar. 03 September 2018.  The recent violence in Myanmar’s northern Rakhine State has led to mass population displacement both within the country and across the border into Bangladesh. Working with local and international partners, the World Food Programme (WFP) is providing assistance for people arriving in Bangladesh from Myanmar.  
 Upon arrival, people receive high-energy biscuits. Once settled, they receive fortnightly rations of rice, lentils and oil. WFP is especially concerned about the health of women and children arriving hungry and malnourished after days on the move, and is providing nutritional support.

Lebanon, Beirut, 27 August 2018  Twenty women in a basement help make Beirut green  During a precious tea break, three of LiveLoveRecycle’s participants explained why they refer to themselves as an army. If you visit LiveLoveRecycle’s Beirut warehouse, it is clear that the women working there do so with military precision. They have to, otherwise their intricate operation with dozens of moving parts simply does not function. They compare themselves to an army, providing assistance to their male colleagues on the front lines fighting a war against otherwise discarded plastic, paper and tin.  This year, the World Food Programme (WFP) invested in a Beirut-based recycling project which has been around for a while but struggled to find funding and support to get off the ground. Based around an app, it both allows Beirutis to request recycling pick ups and directs drivers on electric bikes to their homes or offices around the city. It is completely free to use and after being launched in April, it has over 2,000 regular users.  WFP’s funds came from Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the project is owned by LiveLoveLebanon, a Beirut-based organisation that promotes the best of the country. It’s sibling, LiveLoveRecycle is the first-of-a-kind project in the country which has long sought to both find a sustainable recycling initiative and to tangible solutions to few employment opportunities for its vulnerable communities.  LiveLoveRecycle has two major benefits: it addresses a lack of accessible recycling opportunities in Beirut while also providing training and employment opportunities to some of its most vulnerable citizens. Four months into the project, the male drivers — the public faces of the project — have had their fair share of publicity. They have also been present at dozens of high profile events, advertising the initiative. But, there is a less visible female contingent there too which plays numerous vital roles.  Performing a variety of cleaning, maintenance and catering functions, the twenty female participants work up to 60 hours each month in exchange for US$ 200. That cash is loaded onto red electronic cards from WFP each month and can be withdrawn from any ATM.
