WFP Provides Food Voucher Assistance To Newly Displaced People In North Kordofan

Only two weeks after people in South Kordofan fled violence to villages in North Kordofan, WFP reached around 33,000 displaced people with food vouchers. WFP and the Sudanese Red Crescent Society distributed the vouchers in 35 locations in three localities.


Sudan remains one of WFP's largest and most complex operations. In 2013, WFP plans to provide food assistance to four million people in Sudan, including 2.9 million conflict-affected people in Darfur and one million people in central and eastern Sudan and in the conflict-affected states of Blue Nile and South Kordofan.


On 9 July the southern part of Sudan officially declared its independence from North Sudan and become the world’s 196th country. Go to South Sudan country page
