Reducing WFP aid to Sudanese affects life-saving treatment and increases the risk of malnutrition and potential mortality among 50 percent of the 1.7 million severely malnourished children, WFP said in a press release.
The WFP indicated that it needs about 7 million dollars to continue its activities as usual until the end of this year.
The UN body said a lack of funding has also forced it to provide services to only about 6 percent of Sudanese students included in its school feeding programme.
In June, WFP warned that 15 million people in Sudan, or a third of the country’s population, faced acute food insecurity. ■
