Slovenia will provide generous humanitarian food aid to the most affected developing countries
Through the World Food Program (WFP), Slovenia will contribute one million euros to the Grains from Ukraine initiative, which will enable the shipment of grains from Ukraine to developing countries that are most affected by food shortages.
As part of the humanitarian initiative, Ukraine donates grain, donor countries contribute to its transportation, and WFP coordinates and delivers aid. Several countries joined the initiative. The first ship with 25,000 tons of wheat for Ethiopia left in mid-November. The next shipments of wheat will be directed to the countries where the humanitarian situation, according to the WFP, is considered the most severe, namely Somalia, Yemen and Sudan.
Slovenia’s participation in the Wheat from Ukraine initiative will be announced by the President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, who will participate in the opening of the initiative in Kiev on November 26, 2022, in an audio-video format, with a promise of 1 million euros. connection.
By joining this humanitarian initiative, Slovenia shows solidarity and assumes co-responsibility in the international community for ensuring food security in the poorest countries affected by hunger. The latest contribution complements Slovenia’s previous efforts this year to solve the global food crisis by providing humanitarian aid in response to the crises in Yemen, Haiti, Laos and 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa.
