Schuyler Line Navigation Company (SLNC) Delivers Food Aid to Sudan

Jul 12, 2021 | Corporate Member News

SLNC recently delivered 34,000 MT of critical food aid to Sudan, in partnership with USAID and the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP). Sudan is facing a food crisis since the oil-rich region of South Sudan declared independence in 2011, taking much-needed revenue with it. The COVID-19 pandemic has only aggravated the existing financial challenges, plunging more families into food insecurity and malnutrition.

The aid will move on to Khartoum, El Obeid, Gedarif, and Kosti before final distribution to individual recipients. Learn more about USAID and the WFP’s work in the region: USAID, WFP
