U.N.: 40 Percent of North Koreans Undernourished and in Need of Aid

Oct 10, 2018

The U.N. has raised new alarm over the widespread malnutrition plaguing North Korea. The U.N.’s World Food Programme is one of the few humanitarian agencies allowed in the notoriously isolated country but is at risk of cuts to its program due to funding shortages. This is a World Food Programme spokesperson.

Herve Verhoosel: “Ten million people, that’s 40 percent of the population, are undernourished and require humanitarian assistance. One in every five children is suffering of chronic malnutrition.”
