Summary: 

An Ilyushin-76 plane airdrops food near Kaya in South Sudan as WFP uses aircrafts to bring additional food stocks to the camps for Sudanese refugees in Maban County.   However, airdrops are not only expensive but the sheer volume of the food requirement for Maban is such that it would take nearly 34 days for a plane doing two drops a day to be able to complete the food needed for a month.
