WFP Helps Cuba's Hurricane-Affected Communities

The U.N. World Food Program is giving emergency assistance to the Cuban government.

The WFP announced Tuesday that it will help feed about two million people at a cost of nearly $6 million.

The aid package is intended to help Cuba recover from last month's devastation from Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.

During the next six months, WFP will provide food rations, including rice, beans, vegetable oil, canned fish and more.

The WFP will also supply temporary food storage warehouses and liquid gas stoves to people who lost their cooking facilities in the storms.
