The Department for International Development (DFID) has contributed GBP 1.5 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) for post-earthquake reconstruction work.

Through the donation, WFP will be able to support the Government of Nepal’s (GoN) efforts to rebuild critical infrastructure such as trails in remote areas affected by the quake in 2015, the WFP Nepal stated in a press release today.

Pippa Bradford, WFP Nepal Representative and Country Director said WFP knows that access to trails helps communities reach markets and social services, and is inextricably linked to food security and economic development.
