The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) on Thursday handed over a state-of-the-art Humanitarian Response Facility (HRF) to the government of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
The facility will be used to store and dispatch humanitarian relief supplies for future emergencies, augmenting national capacity and reducing the time needed to respond to crises,said a press release issued here.
AJK Prime Minister, Raja Muhammad Farooq Haider Khan, expressed his gratitude to WFP, donor countries and the United Nations for their support and assistance in relief and rebuilding efforts following the 2005 earthquake.—APP
