The UN World Food Program (WFP) announced July 3 that it is expanding its operations to feed 4.6 million people in Ethiopia, in response to the Horn of Africa nation?s pressing appeal for help in staving off hunger-related deaths. WFP currently provides food aid for over 3 million people in the country, and needs contributions to step up its program. The agency faces a nearly 400,000 metric ton food shortfall from July through December and must also repay over USD 30 million in internal advances. (UN News Service)
