A donation of 25,000 tons of wheat for emergency food assistance to 1.3 million crisis-affected people in northeast Nigeria has arrived in the country from Ukraine.

The tons of wheat were donated through the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP). This vital contribution – part of Ukraine’s humanitarian “Grain from Ukraine” initiative launched by President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, would come in handy as prices of staple food in Nigeria have been rising in recent times, pushing basic meals out of the reach of millions of vulnerable families across the country.

According to a statement by World Food Programme, the shipment was made possible thanks to a collaborative effort from Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Luxembourg, Norway, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, which helped cover the costs of transporting the wheat from Ukraine to Nigeria and its distribution to the families who so urgently need it.
