Kenya receives 30,000 tonnes of wheat from Ukraine


Kenya on Monday received about 30,000 metric tonnes of wheat from Ukraine to help families affected by drought and famine.

The donation is part of Ukraine’s humanitarian programme.

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua, who received the shipment, said the donation will go to at least 5.4 million Kenyans who are facing starvation.

The UN’s World Food Programme has supported the delivery. The donation has also been financed by several countries including Norway, Belgium, Italy, the Czech Republic and the United Kingdom.

The programme has delivered more than 140,000 tonnes of wheat to African nations since November 2022.
