    WFP to remain in Philippines

    AS relief and rehabilitation works go full steam in the provinces battered by killer typhoon "Yolanda" (Haiyan), the World Food Programme (WFP) on Sunday announced that it will still remain in the affected communities to aid displaced families.
    “Emergency food assistance remains a top priority. Protecting children from malnutrition is crucial in the weeks and months ahead and WFP will remain alongside families through the early recover process,” said WFP Philippines country director Praveen Agrawal.
    The relief agency has donated over 11,000 metric tons of food to communities affected by "Yolanda" since its onslaught last Nov. 8.
    This timely assistance has provided food to an estimated three million people.
    Meanwhile, the WFP is requesting for more donations to continue with its relief work.
    Donations can be made online at wfp.org/LiveFeedPhilippines. #
