DFID has contributed a total of £22.15 million during 2006 to the World Food Programme’s operations in the Horn of Africa. Direct contributions have been made to WFP this year of £15 million for Kenya, £6.5 million for Somalia, and £0.65 million for Ethiopia.

Indirect contributions to WFP and other food relief have also been made by DFID through our contributions to UN Humanitarian Response Funds in countries in the Horn, and through the UN’s Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), to which we are the largest contributor.
