"WFP is grateful for this new contribution from the Government of China, which is absolutely critical in sustaining our life-saving response for the most vulnerable households in Burkina Faso to meet their immediate food needs," said Sixi Qu, WFP China Representative in a press release on Thursday.
"This contribution is timely as Burkina Faso is facing the worst food crisis of the last decade," Qu said.
The contribution was made under the Global Development and South-South Cooperation Fund to support Burkina Faso, which faces a severe deterioration in food security and nutrition.
WFP’s assistance will help crisis-affected communities to cope with recurrent shocks.
