The Commissioner made the statement on Friday after meeting with representatives from the United Nations [UN] and World Food Programme[WFP] who came from Juba to brief the authorities on the new relief policies.

“The World Food Programme [WFP] has come up with new policies of introducing cash to be given to the IDPs who are sheltering in Gulyaaror Mingkaman area”, he said.
