Red Cross distributes seeds, food to 18,000 families in Central Darfur’s Jebel Marra

Fourteen thousand families in Jebel Marra’s Rokoro and 4,000 in Golo are receiving seeds and food assistance from the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).
The Sudanese Red Crescent Society (SRCS) joined the ICRC in the assessment and registration of beneficiaries and in the distribution of the seeds, the ICRC said in a press release on Sunday.
“The distribution will enable supported families to plant crops in advance of the rainy season so that they have food to harvest later in the year to consume and sell,” said ICRC agronomist Joseph Dome.
