Ten WFP trucks, with two containers each, traveled from El Fasher to Shangil Tobaya to deliver 350 metric tons of food (oil and sorghum) to Nifasha and Shaddad camps for Internally Displaced Persons.
WFP through its partner, Africa Humanitarian Action (AHA), provides food for around 20,000 beneficiaries in these camps, who have fled from different surrounding villages in the region; some 14km north of the South Darfur border and at the midpoint between El-Fasher and Nyala. WFP food remains the main source of food for IDPs in Shangil Tobaya.
The road trip, nearly 100 kilometers, took more than 8 hours due to difficult road conditions. The convoy was protected all the way by UNAMID troops from Ethiopia and Rwanda. Photo by Albert Gonzalez Farran, UNAMID.
