The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) signed an agreement with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), in which the latter paid £ 32.5 million to support the program's operations for two years.


The program will enable it to continue to support displaced Darfuris, especially those who have been unable to access food regularly for many years, WFP said in a statement today.
He added that the support of the Development Department will provide food assistance to refugees from southern Sudan who reside in Sudan.
The contribution of the Department for International Development will also enable the program to expand its operations to provide cash assistance or vouchers to enable people to purchase essential foodstuffs and other supplies.


More than 1.7 million people will benefit from UK assistance through innovative projects such as food for assets that provide food and vouchers to people as incentives for their participation in capacity building activities such as water harvesting, infrastructure development and handicrafts.
