The vessel MV Future ID delivered 14.6 thousand tons of flour milled from Ukrainian wheat to the port of Khartoum.

The second batch of humanitarian aid arrived in Sudan as part of the Grain from Ukraine initiative. The Ministry of Agrarian Policy and Food announced this on Friday, March 29.

It was noted that the vessel MV Future ID delivered 14.6 thousand tons of flour milled from Ukrainian wheat to the port of Khartoum.

“Flour from Ukrainian wheat will be distributed by WFP as part of food packages for 2 million people in Sudan affected by the war,” the statement said.

The donors for the shipment of the two cargoes were Germany, which gave $15 million. As well as Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Ireland, the Netherlands, South Korea, Slovenia and Spain, which financed the shipment of the second batch of flour at a cost of $23.8 million.

The first batch of humanitarian cargo was delivered to the port of Khartoum on February 22. The vessel MV Ocean Dream brought 7665 tons of flour from Ukrainian wheat.

Nearly 18 million people in Sudan are now facing severe food insecurity. Of these, approximately 5 million, according to UN estimates, are in a state of extreme hunger (IPC4).

We remind you that in 2022 the humanitarian initiative Grain from Ukraine was launched. It provides for the purchase of Ukrainian grain by partner countries and its transfer to countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East suffering from a humanitarian crisis. The program is implemented in collaboration with the World Food Program under the auspices of the UN.

A week ago, President Vladimir Zelensky said that Ukraine is creating new routes for Grain from Ukraine.
