Ration alert at refugee camps

The World Food Program (WFP) says it has averted major and immediate cuts to refugee rations across Burma. Speaking to DVB on Thursday, the UN-affiliated organisation said that enough supplies are available to provide full monthly rations until the end of January, but 20 percent cuts would be implemented if the WFP fails to raise an additional US$8 million by then. Some two hundred thousand displaced people in Shan, Kachin and Arakan States depend on WFP rations.
