The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) has provided vital food assistance to nearly 3,000 displaced people stranded in the harsh Libyan desert as they struggle to return to their hometown of Tawergha, in western Libya, according to the UNSMIL website.
With the help of our Libyan partner, the Sheikh Taher Azzawi Charity Organization (STACO), WFP has delivered food to nearly 3,000 Tawarghan people stranded in the desert area of Qararat Al-Gotif. Each WFP food ration contains a month’s supply of rice, pasta, wheat flour, chickpeas, vegetable oil, sugar and tomato paste for a family of five, the UNSMIL added.
Overall, in 2018, WFP aims to assist 123,000 Libyans who are struggling to feed themselves. Priority is being given to the most vulnerable families affected by the conflict.
