Refugees to receive less food in Kenya, says WFP

14 November 2014, 15:43 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Refugees residing in Kenya will receive half the food ration they are currently getting, the World Food Programme WFP has announced.

The announcement was made Friday by Paul Turnbull, the WFP Deputy Country Director for Kenya, who said that lack of funds will force the refugees as the Kakuma and Dadaab camps to receive reduced rations.

He said that the problem will persist until January 2015 when things are expected to go back to normal.

" We have done everything we can to avoid reducing rations and have used all means possible at our disposal to cover critical funding gaps, " said Turnbull.

He said that cutting food rations was not ideal but necessary to enable them be able to service the remaining food over the coming ten weeks.

" I admit that cutting rations is the last resort but we’re doing it to try push out the limited food we currently have available over the next ten weeks, as we continue to appeal to the international community to assist for extra funds," he added.

WFP expects to distribute half-rations until the end of January 2015, when a shipment of food assistance donated by the United States of America, sufficient for six weeks’ food requirements, is expected to arrive.
