Reaching those furthest behind by World Food Programme on Exposure
More than 45,000 people received food and nutrition support in Ngala, northeastern Nigeria, as part of WFP’s second rapid response mission bringing life-saving help to people displaced by Boko Haram violence. The Rapid Response Mechanism (RMM) is an emergency response for delivering humanitarian assistance to people when they are most vulnerable — caught in conflict, fleeing violence, or otherwise in extremely hard-to-reach areas. An RRM team hits the ground to conduct a rapid needs assessment and then coordinates an operation to deliver food and other humanitarian aid to reach a large volume of people in a short time. In Ngala, WFP delivered rice, beans, a nutritious corn and soy flour blend, and specialized food to fight malnutrition in children.
