Author : | Published: Tuesday, January 6, 2015

The government of Sudan has extended the memorandum of understanding for transporting humanitarian aid to South Sudan through its land for another six months.

A Sudanese electronic media, Al-Tareeq, reports that the MoU which was supposed to expire on the 8th of this month, was extended yesterday.

A joint statement was signed by the Sudanese Humanitarian Aid Commissioner, Ahmed Mohamed Adam, the Ambassador of South Sudan to Sudan, Mayen Dut Wol, and the World Food Program’s Country Director in Sudan, Adnan Khan.

The MoU allows WFP to transport lifesaving assistances to the needy people in South Sudan through Sudanese territories.

The statement says the MoU was extended based on the request of the government of South Sudan based on the appalling humanitarian situation in the country.

Under the terms of the first Memorandum of Understanding, WFP transported nearly 2,000 metric tons of food from Kosti to the most vulnerable people in South Sudan by land and through the Nile.

According to UN estimates, about 1.5 million people are in need of aid in the country.
