Health Care :: WFP emergency food reaches people affected by massive flooding in Aceh

Within hours of the first reports of devastating floods this week in the Indonesian province of Aceh, WFP moved rapidly to deliver emergency supplies by air and road to some 127,000 displaced people in the hardest hit districts of Aceh Tamiang and Gayo Lues.

WFP is currently moving food aid overland with trucks, while in the most inaccessible mountain areas where people are still cut off, the agency is airlifting emergency assistance, using both a WFP-operated helicopter of the UN Humanitarian Air Service, and two helicopters provided by the Government of Indonesia.
