Due to budget cuts, the World Food Programme (WFP) office in Nepal is preparing to shrink its size and operation. This decision is said to have been taken after the office could not raise Rs 4.30 billion or nearly fifty percent of its budget in this year. Due to this budget cut, the WFP is preparing to remove its regional offices, cut down its staffs and reduce the use of helicopters in transporting food. The WFP officials have said that the office will substantially decrease its budget within six weeks. Its plan to feed 1.8 million people this year will be revised in the light of budget cuts as the office will now be able to serve only 1.2 million people.
