Food Crisis: Estate Sector worst affected, says WFP
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The World Food Program in its report for September 2022 reported that the highest level of acute food insecurity is in the Estate sector.The World Food Program has highlighted the tea production sector as having the  highest level of acute food insecurity in the Estate sector.It is also recorded and among female-headed households, households with no education, and Samurdhi programme beneficiaries.A severe macroeconomic crisis caused acute shortages and spikes in the prices of essential products, including medicines, food, agricultural inputs and fuel, bringing the overall economic activities to a standstill, with major disruptions to agricultural production, said the WFP.It added that acute food insecurity has risen dramatically, as a result of import shortages, soaring prices, livelihood disruptions, reduced household purchasing power and exhaustion of less severe household coping strategies. The WFP said that Food and livelihood-related coping strategies are being widely adopted, including cutting the number of meals consumed in a day, reducing meal sizes, spending savings, and purchasing food on credit. As households exhaust these strategies, more of them are likely to engage in severe means of coping with negative knock-on consequences for food security over the medium term.The World Food Program warned that the situation is likely to deteriorate during the lean season from October 2022 to February 2023.It added that over 6.2 million people (28 percent of the population) are estimated to be moderately acute food insecure and 66 000 people to be severely acute food insecure. Immediate food assistance and livelihood programmes are essential for moderately and severely acute food insecure

Ozzy Osbourne has shared his determination to return to the stage after a series of devastating health issues.The Black Sabbath frontman, who has been living with Parkinson’s disease for nearly two decades, was forced to take time out of the spotlight due to a string of difficulties.He also underwent multiple operations after falling in 2019 and has been recovering from a ‘nightmare’ surgery ever since.After taking to the stage at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony, the 73-year-old has set his sights on performing in front of a crowd once again with his brand new album.‘I am determined to get back on stage even if I have to be nailed to a board and wheeled on,’ he vowed in a new interview. ‘Survival is my legacy.’Ozzy has faced huge health issues over recent years and recalled the moment he fell while making his way to the bathroom, which impacted old injuries to his neck and back from an accident 16 years prior.He underwent surgery that ‘really messed me up’ soon after, and has been back under the knife twice since, with Sharon previously explaining that his most recent procedure could ‘determine the rest of his life’.Despite his difficulties, the musician dazzled the crowds during his surprise Commonwealth Games set last month.‘I’ve never been this laid up,’ he continued to People Magazine.
