WFP raises ceiling of support for Yemen to $ 77 mln

SANA'A, Dec.23(Saba)- The World Food Programme (WFP) has approved the allotment of USD 77 million to support Yemen's efforts to combat poverty and improve the food security indications.

In a statement to Saba, Deputy Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Hisham Sharf pointed out that the WFP decided to raise the ceiling of its support for Yemen during 2011-2012 to reach USD 77 million.

This support would be dedicated to help the poor who suffer from lack of food security and to enhance the Yemeni government's efforts in the field of humanitarian relief, Sharaf made it clear.

He indicated that this support is provided through contributions of several donor countries to Yemen, and comes within the understanding of the donors' community for the importance of supporting the humanitarian relief efforts in Yemen.

The government's trends during the coming period would focus on supporting the poor and achieving food security and improving the humanitarian relief efforts, Sharaf said.

Furthermore, he pointed out that the government would pay great attention to the improvement and provision of education and health services at the targeted areas in cooperation with Yemen's development partners, including the WFP.
