Islamabad- World Food Programme (WFP) says it needs 51 million dollars for its relief activities in Pakistan until the end of the year.

In an interview, WFP Pakistan Country Director Ms Castro said this included assistance to the newly displaced population from North Waziristan, families displaced earlier and people returning to their areas.

She said the WFP has provided 15-day food rations to displaced families in Bannu and Lakki Marwat districts. WFP is distributing its standard food basket of wheat flour, pulses, vegetable oil and iodized salt.
