Refugee Food Rations Cut as War in Ukraine Worsens Global Hunger

  • Curbs as high as 50% impacting Ethiopia, South Sudan, Uganda
  • Global food prices have soared nearly 18% so far this year

The World Food Programme is cutting food rations for refugees by as much as half, as it faces a hunger crisis worsened by the war in Ukraine and funding constraints. 

“We are being forced to make the heart-breaking decision to cut food rations for refugees who rely on us for their survival,” WFP Executive Director David Beasley said Monday in a statement.
