Ukraine gives Nigeria 25,000 tons of wheat to help with its food problem.
Ukraine gave Nigeria 25,000 tons of wheat, which the country says will help with the emergency food situation that is affecting more than 1.3 million people in northeast Nigeria.

This is an action taken by the UN's World Food Program (WFP) in northeast Nigeria in reaction to rising food and inflation prices.

These funds are also part of Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's "Grain from Ukraine" humanitarian effort.

The UK, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Luxembourg, Norway, the Republic of Korea, and Sweden all worked together to make the shipment possible. They helped pay for the costs of getting the wheat from Ukraine to Nigeria and giving it to families who need it.

David Stevenson, who works for the WFP and is the Country Director in Nigeria, said, "We want to thank the Government of Ukraine, our partners, and donors for their unwavering support through the Grain from Ukraine Initiative."

"This group effort is very important for easing suffering and protecting people's dignity in places where there is conflict and food prices are going up."

"WFP has the tools and is ready to help the government restore and unlock northeast Nigeria's agricultural potential, making it the country's basket of bread again." But we can't do this by ourselves.

"We need to work together to bring peace and stability to the country, keep markets stable, encourage investments, and create jobs by working together better with private sector partners, suppliers, transporters, service providers, and retailers in Nigeria."
