January 6, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - A mission team of the World Food Programme (WFP) arrived on Monday to the SPLM-N Agar controlled areas in the Blue Nile State to assess the humanitarian needs of civilians in the region.

"Today, 6th of January 2020, the first humanitarian advance assessment team led by the World Food Program (WFP) and other United Nations agencies have landed in Ulu in the SPLM-N liberated areas in the Blue Nile state," said Ishraga Ahmed Khamis, Sudan Relief and Rehabilitation Agency (SRRA) Director in a statement extended to Sudan Tribune on Monday.

This visit "marks the end of General al -Bashir regime policy of using food and humanitarian assistance as a weapon against civilians," Khamis further said.

Last December after more than 8 years, Yabous in Blue Nile state received humanitarian aid. The Executive Director for the UN World Food Programme
David Beasley travelled to the area from Khartoum after meeting Sudanese Prime Minister Abdallah Hamdok.

Sudanese transitional government and the armed groups last year signed an agreement in Juba for the cessation of hostilities to allow humanitarian access to the rebel-held areas from inside or outside the country.

The head of the SRRA called on the humanitarian community and the NGOs to cooperate and support the SRRA effort to deal with the humanitarian crisis in the Two Areas and Darfur.

    "WFP assesses humanitarian needs in SPLM-N Agar areas of Blue Nile state"
    Women of ’Nuba Mountains and Southern Blue Nile’, don’t worry. Just work with Mr. Abdelaziz Adam Al-Hilu, he is not a traitor or anyone puppet/stooge, he is like a young boy of Commander Yusuf Kuwa and Dr. John Garang. His people died in the trenches like the Dinkas/Muonyjiengs of the Sudan here in South Sudan>>>>

Here in *South Sudan, the UN and humanitarian aid, donations and human rights* are easy to find than ’what cause the war, brought the UN, humanitarian aid and donations into South Sudan in the first place’.>>>>

But Mr. Abdelaziz al-Hilu is not owned never ever try to let any evil try influence yourself and your people. And they will get ’a hole and get in’. I am of the boys who help bombed the cloned so-called arabs of North Sudan out of Yei in 1997,>>>>

    Go look up the World Food Program and its ties to Robert Dole, Archers Daniels Midland, ConAgra and Continental Grain (related to Henry Kissinger). The WFP was also used in Operation Lifeline Sudan to smuggle weapons to the SPLA to undermine the government.
