World Food Program sends humanitarian aid to Lebanon

A report by the UN Bureau for the Coordination of Humanitarian Relations, released today, states that the World Food Program has dispatched a shipment of 50,000 tons of wheat flour to Beirut to help stabilize the wheat supply.
A Reuters report on Friday revealed that the Lebanese government had no strategic grain supply at the port prior to last week's explosion and all privately held stocks in the country's only grain silo were destroyed in the explosion.
The flour is being sent "to stabilize national supplies and to ensure that there is no food shortage in the country," the report said.
It has been estimated that Lebanon's current flour reserves will meet market needs for six weeks.
"A first shipment of 17,500 tons is expected to arrive in Beirut within the next 10 days to supply bakeries for a month," the report said.
