KHARTOUM, June 18 (Xinhua) -- With the beginning of the rainy season and accompanying difficulties caused by unpaved roads Cheap Air Max 90 Triple White , the UN World Food Programme (WFP) is racing with time to deliver food aid via Sudanese humanitarian corridors to thousands of people affected by war and famine in South Sudan.

"The rainy season constitutes the major challenge for us," Lemma Bayissa, WFP director in Sudan's North Kordofan State, told Xinhua in an exclusive interview on Sunday.


"That is why we are speeding up, day and night. The rainy season comes with other issues such as road conditions, besides that trucks sometimes take more than their capacity and technical problems might be there in the area," he noted.


"During this time the challenge is represented in fewer trucks Cheap Air Max 90 Triple Black , sometimes fewer commercials and less inaccessibility because of the rainy season to areas such as West Kordofan, South Kordofan and other target areas," the director added.


He further explained that WFP resorts to "prepositioning process" before the rainy season begins to secure food supplies at the target areas.


"Before the rainy season we are sending the food to areas like South Kordofan, i.e we pump the food before the rainy season. We are doing the same thing in areas like South Kordofan, like Kharasan and Al Meram," Bayissa said.


He reiterated that there was enough amount of food at the WFP warehouses in EL Obied, the capital city of North Kordofan State.


"Two days ago Cheap Air Max 90 Red , we added 15, 600 metric tons of food. That means we have food in Kosti; we have food in Port-Sudan. Food is coming," he said.


According to Bayissa, the WFP has so far steered 12 convoys through two Sudanese humanitarian corridors and carried more than 25,000 metric tons of food to the needy in South Sudan.


"For Bentiu corridor, we sent ten convoys, with the total cereals sent reaching 12 Cheap Air Max 90 Pink ,000 metric tons," he said.


The UN official also expressed appreciation for the facilities provided by the Sudanese government, which contributed to WFP's success in delivering food to thousands of the needy in South Sudan.


"We really appreciate what the Sudanese government is doing. There is a proper coordination. We have a joint technical committee established at Khartoum level, and a joint technical committee established at El Obied level for which every week, may be sometimes two times, a meeting is going on," he noted.


He added that government security bodies would assist by escorting UN convoys to South Sudan.


Thanks to the memorandum of understanding signed between Sudan and South Sudan in 2014 Cheap Air Max 90 Blue , the WFP has so far transported more than 57,420 tons of food through Sudan's humanitarian corridors to the new-born country.

The UN agency is currently assisting over 250,000 South Sudanese refugees across Sudan, with the majority in the White Nile State.


In 2017, the WFP plans to assist 4.6 million people inside Sudan, including the displaced, refugees Cheap Air Max 90 White , people affected by climate.
