Thousands of people affected by mudslides and flooding within Sierra Leone are now receiving food assistance, UN Radio says referring to the
the World Food Programme (WFP) report.
As to the report, the WFP started food distributions to 7,500 people within some of the hardest hit communities around the capital, Freetown, within hours of the mudslides, which began this week Mon and killed scores and left many more homeless.
As to the report, both survivors and households which are hosting them, as well as rescue workers and mortuary attendants, will receive rations of rice, pulses, vegetable oil and salt.
It is to be admitted, the agency has been tasked by the United Nations to support and coordinate a joint humanitarian response within Sierra Leone that ensures people receive food, shelter and other essential assistance.
