Sudan: Swiss Donate U.S.$2.4 Million Grant for WFP Sudan

Switzerland contributed a grant and in-kind donations worth $2.4 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on Monday, to support the programme's early recovery and safety-net activities aimed at improving household food security across Sudan. The contribution is split into a cash grant of $1.5 million and an in-kind donation of dried skimmed milk, valued at $933,489. WFP will use the funds to buy nearly 300 metric tons of special nutritional products in order to treat and prevent acute malnutrition. The programme expects this quantity to be enough to cover the needs of more than 33,000 pregnant and nursing mothers and children younger than five years, for three months. The 250 metric tons of dried skimmed milk will complement the regular hot meals provided to children through WFP's school feeding projects in North, South and West Kordofan states which benefit some 175,000 school children.
