The visit by the WFP Regional Director is connected to the World Food Programmes’ continuous support to the Government’s disaster relief efforts.

Vice President Joof thanked the WFP for the enormous support to The Gambia Government’s humanitarian relief efforts, especially during the recent floods that devastated most parts of the country.
