Food Aid is Sent for Lebanon After Beirut Explosion
After the catastrophic explosion in the Lebanese capital Beirut, grain and food parcels are sent to the affected country.
The blast destroyed the harbour. Much of Lebanon’s grain supply was also lost. Food shortages threaten.
The World Food Program (WFP), a United Nations aid agency, has announced its intention to send wheat flour and grain.
It is also intended that thousands of victims of families receive food parcels.
A significant part of the Lebanese population was already struggling with problems due to the bad economic situation and the consequences of the coronavirus.
The WFP fears that the consequences of the disaster will further deteriorate the already “grim” food supply.
