KHARTOUM: Britain announced almost $55 million in aid to Sudan during a visit by its foreign secretary to Khartoum, the embassy said Thursday.
Dominic Raab announced “the disbursement of 40 million pounds ($54.9 million) to the Sudan Family Support Programme – to provide 1.6 million people with direct financial support,” the embassy said in a statement.
Raab arrived in Sudan late Wednesday on the first visit by a British foreign secretary to the East African country in over a decade.
