USAID to Provide $68 Million for Sudan Emergency Food Relief

The U.S. Agency for International Development said it will provide almost $68 million for emergency food aid in Sudan, raising the total it’s given for humanitarian relief there to $351 million since 2015.

The aid will reach about 2.5 million Sudanese as well as refugees from South Sudan and other neighboring countries, the agency said Wednesday in an e-mailed statement.

Sudan has the third-highest prevalence of malnutrition in the world with the number of people there projected to require food aid likely to reach 4.5 million during the peak lean season in 2016, according to the agency.
