Mauritania School Feeding Suspended, WFP Seeks Interim Aid

Published on 21 March 2011

The UN World Food Programme's (WFP) school feeding program in Mauritania is suspended as it awaits new food supplies. A WFP official explains, "Every year from January-May we have a very difficult time finding funding, and by the time the funding arrives, the whole purchase-arrival process means that food will arrive the end of the school year (May)."
