PM meets WFP new representative
[15/June/2013]

Sana'a, June 15 (Saba) - Prime Minister Mohammed Salem Basindwa met here on Saturday with the newly appointed representative of the World Food Programme (WFP) in Yemen Bishaw Parajuli.

During the meeting, Basindwa and Parajuli discussed aspects of the current and future cooperation between Yemen and the WFP to encounter food shortage, especially in the food-poorest areas in a number of governorates targeted by the government and the WFP.

The WFP official briefed the Prime Minister on joint programs scheduled to be implemented in the remaining period of the current year in coordination with the Education Ministry.

Parajuli said that the programs worth up to $ 260 million target children under the age of five, pregnant women, and displaced people as well, stressing the importance of the donors to participate in supporting WFP's resources to cover the costs of the operational plans in the targeted areas broadly.

The Prime Minister praised the outstanding humanitarian activities carried out by the WFP in support of the government's plans to address the problem of food poverty among the poorest populations.

Basindwa underlined the need to intensify joint efforts to expand the scope of the Programme's work and increase the beneficiary families.
