Royal Embassy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia recently handed over 153 tons of dates to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) Philippines.
The generous date donation from the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will be distributed to students who are part of WFP’s school feeding programme in Central Mindanao, majority of whom are in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM). The fruit contains essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that will contribute to the children’s growth and development.
In coordination with the Philippine Department of Social Welfare and Development, WFP will distribute the dates – which the students will take home – to about 65,000 vulnerable families in the conflict-affected provinces in ARMM.
