August 1, 2018 (KHARTOUM) Sudan’s Humanitarian Aid Commission (HAC) on Wednesday said a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to deliver food assistance to South Sudan has been extended for another six months.

In July 2014, Juba and Khartoum signed a MoU to open a humanitarian corridor to deliver food assistance to vulnerable South Sudanese through the River Nile or by road. Last January, the agreement was extended for a six month period.

The cross-border operation allows the World Foord Programmes (WFP) to reduce the costly airlift or airdrop operations in a time where the international agency faces serious financial challenges.

HAC Commissioner, Ahmed Mohamed Adam, said they are planning to transfer 65,000 metric tons of food to enhance the humanitarian situation in South Sudan.

The WFP seeks to transfer 30,000 metric tons of life-saving assistance to South Sudan in 2018 to feed some 1,7 million people for 10 months.

On 30 June 2017, WFP began providing food assistance to South Sudan using a new corridor to transport food items overland from El Obeid in central Sudan to Bentiu in South Sudan’s Unity state.

Sudan has so far opened four aid corridors to deliver food assistance to South Sudan.

South Sudan became the world’s newest nation after declaring independence from Sudan in 2011.

However, in 2013 the country was plunged into civil war killing tens of thousands of people and displacing millions.

            Some of my lowly informed South Sudanese idiots, the people who pay for the damn food rations in these filthy so-called UN POCs are the gulf Arab states countries and not the damned US or the UK. The so-called UN UNIMISS peacekeepers are also not paid by the damned US, the UK and their allies. But are paid by some rich criminals in wall street, London and others who are keeping their money>>>

Do some South Sudanese with brains remember when Mr. Pagan Amuom went & declared outside the UN building in New York that the UN should take over our country? Thomas Cirillo in his hotel room Adis Ababa also asked the South Sudanese people to run away from South Sudan>>>

                      and go to neighbouring countries simply because Mr. Salva Kiir was killing them. Adwok Nyabe said that the current government of South Sudan would be destroyed, unless the UN & NGOs are given the running of our country. Majak Agoot & Mr. Kosti Manibe have expressed the handover of our country to UN & the NGOs. Mr. Riek Machar wanted the UN, NGOs, the UNIMISS & the so-called Rapid Protection Force>
