2 nations pledge food as aid to North Korea

Feb 13,2004
Responding to a World Food Program appeal for more aid to North Korea, New Zealand and Germany have said that they would provide additional supplies, AFP reported yesterday.
New Zealand will donate $256,000 to the UN relief agency to help the famine-stricken communist country, Prime Minister Helen Clark reportedly said.
Germany has offered 3 million euros ($3.84 million) to the UN operations in the North, the German aid ministry said.
The UN agency called Monday for help in feeding 6.5 million of the country’s hungriest people. “We are scraping the bottom of the barrel,” said Masood Hyder, the World Food Program representative in North Korea. “Over four million core beneficiaries are now deprived of very vital rations.”
