WFP withholds Marib aid for unknown reasons, food risks spoilage: Reports

The World Food Program is refraining from distributing food aid to IDPs in the government-held Marib province for unknown reasons despite the availability of the aid in stores and their risk of decaying, it has been reported.

 

Almasdar news website quoted a local "aid official" as saying: " a meeting between the province's local authority represented by Deputy Governor and top relief aid official Abd-Rabbu Miftah and the WFP represented by the program's deputy director in the Aden office on Thursday to start distributing aid to the beneficiaries as of Saturday, but the WFP did not keep its word."

 

He said, "The WFP has not begun to distribute aid today, Saturday, even though food materials for the current round have been already available in the WFP's stores for three weeks."

 

The official warned, "The stay of food so long in the stores …makes it risk spoilage because of high temperatures and raises questions on the reason of this delay."

 

The WFP has been suspending aid distribution in Marib for three months citing what it calls a shortage of support from donors.
