WFP appeals for more humanitarian aid to Ethiopia’s Tigray province

The World Food Programme of United Nations says the first delivery in two weeks of humanitarian aid to the Tigray province of Ethiopia will last for about seven days but much more support is needed.

The WFP’s regional spokesman, Gorden Weiss, said 100 trucks carrying aid to the region were needed every day to stay on top of the crisis.

Mr Weiss said an additional 1.7 million people were now in need of help as the armed conflict had spread to Tigray’s neighboring regions of Amhara and Afar.
