WFP’s Somalia Country Director, Stefano Porretti, said his WFP Somalia is grateful for the continued support of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
“Following the famine declaration in 2011, Saudi Arabia contributed US$48 million to WFP’s Somalia operation. These dates will be a nutritious supplement to the diet of the most vulnerable in Mogadishu,” Porretti added.
WFP’s current operation is a three-year programme, which began in January, providing assistance to more than 1.5 million food-insecure Somalis through a combination of nutrition, livelihood, relief and social safety net activities.
