Sudan: WFP working round the clock as emergency food aid reaches 50,000 in need

The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has been able to support around 50,000 Sudanese in need in three states, amid the continuing fighting and food crisis there, which temporarily halted the agency’s aid operation after three staffers were killed.

That’s according to Leni Kinzli head of communications for WFP in Sudan, who said a total of 19 million are expected to face food insecurity during the coming lean season, and called on the international community not to take their eyes off the crisis in the country, provoked by the ongoing military power struggle.

Raghuveer Sharma said he felt relieved when he saw the Indian Army at Port Sudan. "We felt an immense sense of relief that our lives may be saved.”
