In Pakistan, some 2.5 million people have lost their livelihoods as a result of the floods. The Government has not asked WFP for emergency assistance, but welcomed WFP deliveries of food in some of the worst-hit areas in the first few days of the flooding last month.
WFP is on standby with an emergency operation targeting up to 132,000 people for three months if officially requested.
WFP has already distributed 575 tons of food to 5,330 families (37,310 persons) in Noshki, Kharan, Jaffarabad and Jal Magsi districts. The food basket included wheat flour, pulses, vegetable oil, salt and high-energy biscuits.
On 25 July, WFP also launched a special operation valued at US$980,000 to provide logistics support to the UN-humanitarian community for three months. WFP NEWS
