Cross-border operation

Summary: 

Loading up WFP food at Ethiopia's Gambella airport for an airdrop in South Sudan. Besides helping South Sudanese refugees in Ethiopia, WFP Ethiopia has launched a cross-border operation to deliver roughly 40,000 metric tons of food - by air, truck and boat - to hungry people inside South Sudan through December, 2014. As the rainy season sets in, airdrops like this one will become increasingly important to reach needy people in remote and difficult-to-access areas.
