December 22, 2018 (KHARTOUM) - The government of White Nile State said it has dispatched a caravan including 20 trucks carrying humanitarian assistance to the affected population in South Sudan.

The semi-official Sudan Media Center (SMC) quoted the humanitarian aid commissioner in White Nile Abdel-Gawi Hamid as saying the trucks have carried edible oils, legumes and sorghum, pointing the caravan has been dispatched from Kosti and Rabak to the Upper Nile State in South Sudan.

He added the country director of the World Food Programme (WFP) has pledged to provide further foodstuff including Lentils, sugar and grains.

In July 2014, Juba and Khartoum signed Memorandum of Understanding (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 WFP to reduce the costly airlift or airdrop operations in a time where the international agency faces serious financial challenges.

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.

    Bashir after brokered a fake peace deal between Kiir and South Sudanese oppositions whom were intimidated to sign under the barrel of a gun in order to secure a oil deal, now realize that he is going down and the only option remain is to lick Kiir’s butt, now pretends to be helping S.Sudanese. I guess a wise man would use these caravans to feed the hungry-striking Sudanese opposition in Atbara

      Theallseeingeye,

      I don’t want to spoil other people’s Christmas. But there is nothing called fake peace. Has any South Sudanese read what was signed in Khartoum? Absolutely not. Some of our traitors, foreign puppets & theieves like Mr. Riek Machar, Lam Akol, Adwok Nyabe, Pagan Pagan, Gabriel Changson, Majak Agoot, Thomas & others have sold themselves, their souls & their lives to foreign powers>>

        and they also want to sell out the whole South Sudan & the South Sudanese people with them to foreign powers as well. The most obvious question to any clear headed South Sudanese about this SUDAN TRIBUNE piece of propagandum would be ’why would the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan would care send to send food to South Sudanese when they are fighting on the street to have a piece of bread?">>>

          The obvious and answer to this piece of propagandum is: This is just another usual SUDAN TRIBUNE outrageous lie. As I always South Sudan is being played like what was played during their so-called COLD WAR between ’East & West Germany’ by our enemies from the US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their so-called israel attack dog & their gulf Arab states’ financiers>>>
