The World Food Programme has reportedly decided to scale back its nutrition program for babies and pregnant women in North Korea due to a lack of funding.
That's according to a U.S. report by Radio Free Asia on Thursday.
The UN food agency is currently operating a two-year nutritional program worth 2-hundred million U.S. dollars in the North, which targets over 2-million children and expectant mothers.
That figure will be reduced by 30 percent as the W-F-P continues to face budget constraints.
Pyongyang has relied on international handouts since 1995 to help feed its people who suffer from chronic food stortages.
