The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has presented food contribution of about $ 135 million to the World Food Programme (WFP) in Sudan in support of the 1.8 million internally displaced person (IDP) in the troubled Darfur region , and 762, 000 school children in center, east and west Sudan.
WFP said in statement on Tuesday that the contribution of the USAID comes timely especially it comes at the time of hardship which starts in May.
“We are very grateful for the continued and unparalleled support of the people and Government of the United States, which enables us to meet the food needs of vulnerable and conflict-affected groups across Sudan,” said WFP Sudan Country Director Adnan Khan. “Amid continuing humanitarian needs in some regions, it is critical that the international community reinforces its commitments to the needy in Sudan.
The U.S. contribution will help WFP support food-insecure people across Sudan, including 1.8 million internally displaced people in Darfur. It will also support, for a six-month period, more than half a million school children in Darfur and around 262,000 in central and eastern Sudan through WFP’s school feeding programme.
“The steadfast partnership between USAID and WFP has saved countless lives in Sudan over the years,” said Jerry P. Lanier, the United States Chargé d’Affaires to Sudan. “The United States aims to support food security by alleviating hunger, promoting improved nutrition and supporting school feeding programmes. On behalf of the American people, I would like to thank WFP for its efforts in Sudan.”
