The World Food Program WFP delivered humanitarian assistance to low-income families and widows in Sirte, whose homes were destroyed as a result of the war.

A shipment of food aid was distributed to around 750 families in the city through the Association of Ayadi Al-Khair Relief Charity, in coordination with the crisis committee in Sirte, according to a local source from the city.

An official from the WFP explained that the assistance provided is adequate to meet the needs of the families for approximately 30 days, stressing that the WFP is seeking to gradually increase its assistant to cover about 1500 and then to 2000 families as soon as possible.
