Refugee settlements in Maban County in South Sudan's Upper Nile State received 32,000 metric tons of wheat Wednesday, WFP Executive Director Etharin Cousin said.
There are 170,000 Sudanese refugees in South Sudan, fleeing from food shortages and violence in neighboring South Kordofan and Blue Nile states, and new arrivals are malnourished and dehydrated, the statement said.
The wheat was flown in from Ethiopia, and was adequate to feed 2,100 people for a month, Cousin said.
