Finally, Food Truck On Its Way To IDP Camp

Every month WFP moves some 7,000 metric tons of food across Darfur to provide assistance to three million internally displaced persons (IDPs) and other conflict-affected people in the region. Moving food within Darfur has always been fraught with difficulties given poor road conditions and insecurity. To be able to deliver food, WFP relies its skilled pool of truck drivers and on UNAMID troops that escort the convoy.
