A delegation headed by Richard Donald Marles, Parliamentary Secretary for Foreign Affairs of Australia, recently visited a WFP warehouse in El Salvador. The event celebrated Australian-Brazilian cooperation through “twinning” whereby Brazil donated 2 million metric tons of rice and beans to WFP's emergency operations in the aftermath of Tropical Depression 12E in October 2011. Meanwhile Australia donated USD1 million to cover transportation costs.
