Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
US sending $9 million in food aid to [204,000 war] refugees in Tanzania, 1 July
The aid comes as global food supplies tighten amid an ongoing war in UKRAINE.
• The funds will be given through the U.S. Agency for International Development [USAID].  
• The funds will go towards purchasing 12,000 metric tons of maize.
Displaced people from BURUNDI make up the majority of the refugees living in Tanzania but about a quarter are from the DRC, according to the [Norwegian Refugee Council] NFC.  

Food supplies in Tanzania, for native Tanzanians and those living in refugee camps, are shrinking in part due to the ongoing war in UKRAINE.  

African countries rely heavily on RUSSIA and UKRAINE for wheat imports with Tanzania, Senegal[,] and Rwanda importing 60 percent of their wheat supply from both countries, according to Newsweek [6 June].
