World Food Program (WFP) appealed for 1.5 million euros (2 million U.S. dollars) of international food assistance Wednesday for supplying displaced populations in the northern part of Central Africa Republic, according to news.
The situation could turn into a "disaster" if no assistance is available in the next four months, according to Jean Charles Ndayi, WFP official in Bangui, capital of Central Africa Republic,
WFP requires 30,000 tons of food and vehicles for transporting it to the affected areas, according to Ndayi.
WFP's initial aid program for Central Africa Republic is already facing a deficit of more than 18 million euros.
More than 230,000 people, mostly displaced victims of conflicts in the northern part of the country, depend on this aid. (1 euro = 1.35 U.S. dollars)
