USAID Contributes Food, Cash Valued At $18.2M To WFP For Malawi

“USAID has contributed food and cash valued at $18.2 million (MK 6.1 billion) to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to assist Malawians facing food shortages due to a combination of bad weather during the growing season as well as high food prices,” the WFP reports in an article on its webpage. “The contribution from USAID’s Office of Food for Peace — the U.S. Government’s largest provider of overseas food assistance — will help WFP meet the food needs of some 1.5 million people identified as food insecure by the July bulletin of the Malawi Vulnerability Assessment Committee (MVAC),” the article states (11/14).
