WFP Video Reveals Current Hardships


On Monday, the World Food Programme released a new video, ‘The Face of Hunger in DPR Korea’, showing the struggles of the North Korean people hit hardest by bad weather and food shortages during 2011.

The video reveals the limitations of orphanages even in Pyongan Provinces, the agricultural heartland of North Korea, the lack of raw materials at a plant to produce high-nutrition biscuits, and notes official estimates that 60% of the rice crop in Jagang Province has been lost.
