Ukrainian Grain Aid Reaches Sudan, Supporting Millions Facing Hunger

Last week, a new shipment of Ukrainian grain reached Sudan as part of the ongoing “Grain from Ukraine” initiative, supported by the UN World Food Program

President Volodymyr Zelenskyi of Ukraine announced this development on the social network Kh, highlighting Ukraine’s continued commitment to global food security amidst its own challenges.

This latest delivery is set to provide critical aid to two million people in Sudan who are confronting severe hunger and food insecurity. President Zelenskyi emphasized Ukraine's dual role in seeking international support while aiding others, stating, "This is our guiding principle: we are not only looking for help from the world, but also helping others in the world."

The "Grain from Ukraine" initiative plans to continue its efforts, aiming to alleviate the global food crisis by dispatching further shipments to countries in need. This follows the delivery of 14.6 thousand tons of Ukrainian flour by the vessel MV Future ID to Sudan at the end of March, marking the second batch of humanitarian cargo under the initiative. The first batch was delivered on February 22 by the MV "Ocean Dream," which transported 7,665 tons of Ukrainian wheat flour to the port of Khartoum.
