UN Provides Emergency Food Aid To Ukraine

On March 30th, the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) said it is providing emergency food assistance to the most vulnerable people in Ukraine. WFP warned that over 6.5 million people are currently displaced and starving inside Ukraine.

Despite a volatile security situation, WFP has built systems able to deliver food at a large scale to communities in need. Following the operation, WFP has provided 330,000 loaves of freshly baked bread to families in Kharkiv, cash assistance to homeless people in Lviv, and emergency food supplies to the conflict areas of Sumy and Kharkiv through two interagency humanitarian convoys.

WFP expected more food to arrive in Ukraine in the coming days and required $590 million to assist IDPs on the move inside Ukraine. According to WFP Executive Director David Beasley in a briefing on 29th, global food prices have increased sharply since the onset of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and have reached an all-time high in history. Rising food prices have further limited access to food for millions of people. He called on the world to focus on the food crisis facing refugees in Ukraine and to provide more funding.
