MOSCOW, September 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russia has provided one million U.S. dollars worth of food aid to Djibouti.
“Food aid was transferred to the government of Djibouti in an official ceremony. The Russian Federation provided the aid by making a target contribution of one million U.S. dollars to the U.N. World Food Programme,” the Foreign Ministry said on Monday, September 10.
Russia provided 840 metric tonnes of food to Djibouti to meet the needs of 23,000 people for two months. This equals 20 percent of the country’s population affected by the severest drought in the regions over the last 60 years.
“Since the start of the humanitarian crisis in the sub-region, the overall volume of Russian aid to Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Kenya has exceeded 11.5 million U.S. dollars,” the ministry said.
“Russia intends to continue to take an active part in the coordinated international efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to African countries in need,” the ministry said.
