The U.S. Embassy, the U.S. Agency For International Development (USAID) and the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) are set to hand over 36 metric tons of high- energy biscuits meant for South Sudanese refugees.
The high-energy biscuits are a gift of the American people to the refugees in Uganda through USAID.
The goods will be delivered pro-bono by the American logistics company, United Parcel Services in Entebbe tomorrow.
The biscuits are part of a larger 70 million USD contribution that the U.S.Government has made this year to the refugee humanitarian response in Uganda through the WFP.
