WFP receives 41 trucks from Russia as a donation to deliver food to the hungry in Afghanistan

The Government Russia Federation donated 41 trucks to the World Food Program to support food delivery operation in Afghanistan. The donation is valued at USD 2.7 million and comprises of 40 Kamaz brand cargo trucks and one mobile workshop.

The news trucks will replace the old trucks that are past their prime and will prove to be more fuel-efficient. The new trucks each have a capacity of 14 metric tons.

The donation will serve the humanitarian purpose of WFP in Afghanistan very well. WFP has been working in Afghanistan since 1963, and is a neutral humanitarian organization whose aim is to help Afghans build a hunger-free future for themselves and their country.

“We are grateful to the Government of the Russia Federation for this generous donation,” said WFP Afghanistan Country Director and Representative Louis Imbleau. “Logistics is a key element in getting food to hungry people in Afghanistan.”

WFP is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. Each year, on average, WFP feeds more than 90 million people in more than 70 countries.
