The World Food Program said Tuesday it will try to get emergency food aid to 1.4 million people in Nepal over the next three months following the country's devastating earthquake.WFP is also providing logistics, telecommunications and air transport support for the entire aid operation in Nepal and said this role would cost it $34 million over the next three months.The organisation hopes to have two helicopters operational in the coming days to transport humanitarian cargo and aid workers to the worst-affected areas.Initial estimates from WFP's assessment teams -- working with satellite imagery and existing data -- indicate that around 1.4 million people in priority areas urgently need food assistance.
