YOKOHAMA – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) this month welcomed a US$122.62 million humanitarian aid package from the Government of Japan. The donation will enable WFP to provide vital food and nutrition assistance to targeted vulnerable people, many of whom are affected by conflict, in 27 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Part of the funds will also support special logistics operations, which WFP runs in four of those countries.
