Kingdom one of the top five donors to Somalia in 2006

Saudi Arabia was among the top five donors to the World Food Program’s Somalia program for 2006.

Recently, the World Food Program (WFP) has distributed one month’s worth of rations to 6,000 Somalis who took refuge near the Somali-Kenyan border after intense fighting forced them from their homes, UN spokeswoman Michelle Montas said yesterday. The WFP estimates that there are approximately 4,700 internally displaced Somalis stuck at the border with Kenya.
