UNICEF sending hundreds more tons of food to Africa

Within the framework of humanitarian help for famine-stricken regions in Africa, UNICEF will deliver 800 tons of CSB – a pre-cooked blend of corn flour, soya flour and other foodstuffs enriched with minerals and vitamins. "This week, another seven aeroplanes with food aid should land at Nairobi airport with food aid intended for children and mothers living mostly in Somalia." UNICEF's Anna Beňová told the SITA newswire.

UNICEF's Anna Beňová told the SITA newswire.

In July and the first 12 days of August, the organisation delivered 1,830 tons of mostly therapeutic food to children suffering from malnutrition. The aeroplanes which are due to land in Nairobi this week will deliver CSB.

The 800 tons will be distributed to food and aid distribution centres. The aim is to help as many malnourished children as possible, mostly in southern and central Somalia. Around two million children in the area suffer from malnutrition; some 600,000 of these need medical help immediately.
