UK Boosts WFP Resources for Ethiopia

The U.K. will contribute 20 million pounds (USD29 million) to the World Food Program’s operations in Ethiopia, where approximately 5.2 million people are in need of immediate food aid. This contribution comes weeks after the U.K. Department for International Development announced that it would give 200 million pounds to support a safety program spearheaded by the Ethiopian government. DFID also continues to support the country’s education, water, health, agriculture and economic development.
