May 10, 2019

The world food programme thanked and expressed his gratitude to the UAE and KAS for supporting their programme in YEMEN.

The world food programme representative Mr RAYHAN ASSEF ASSAD expressed his gratitude and respect to the UAE and KSA for the immense help and support they provide.

The United Nations World Food Programme has welcomed a $240 million contribution from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to support the food needs of vulnerable people in Yemen.

In the Holy month of Ramadan, Yemen is facing critical shortages of food. The generous contribution will greatly help Yemenis follow their practices and traditions during this important time.

WFP plans to use this contribution to provide millions of families with monthly food rations of flour, pulses, vegetable oil, sugar and salt. In urban areas where the markets are still functioning, families will be given vouchers to purchase these rations through local traders, supporting the local economy as well.
