The UN World Food Program (WFP) has warned that its aid programs for hungry people in Somalia could be jeopardized without fresh contributions allowing the flow of relief to continue. WFP Country Director for Somalia Peter Goossens said the agency needs USD 19.5 million or 26,500 metric tons of food by the end of the year to feed 1 million people in Somalia. Without new contributions, WFP will be short 8,500 tons by October and the accumulated deficit will grow to 70,000 tons worth USD 53 million by next May. (UN News)
