Million Burmese starving: WFP
Myanmar and its people have tremendous potential. But the government's policies, its harsh travel nd trade restrictions, unnecessarily trap millions in lives of poverty and malnutrition, even in food surplus areas such as Shan State,- said Banbury.

2007-10-19 21:29:44 - WFP provides food assistance to vulnerable persons in Myanmar including HIV/AIDS and TB patients under treatment and school children in marginalised areas of the country.Myanmar and its people have tremendous potential. But the government's policies, its harsh travel and trade restrictions, unnecessarily trap millions in lives of poverty and malnutrition, even in food surplus areas such as Shan State,- said Banbury.

'WFP food assistance is desperately needed by so many people, but it is only reaching a fraction of them,- he said.

Even with greater funding for aid agencies, humanitarian assistance alone will not be enough to transform the lives of the millions of vulnerable persons in Myanmar who need help, said Banbury.

The Myanmar government should immediately pursue the reforms needed to lift Myanmar's people out of poverty and hunger, and allow them to reach their full potential,- he said.

Operating in Myanmar in collaboration with 22 UN and NGO cooperating partners, WFP provides food assistance to vulnerable persons in Myanmar including HIV/AIDS and TB patients under treatment and school children in marginalised areas of the country.

A programme giving nutritionally-enriched foods to mothers and children addresses acute malnutrition rates that prevail in several operational areas.
