"Concerted efforts by all stakeholders are important and needed to find solutions to counter short- and long-term food insecurity," said Yim Chhay Ly, deputy prime minister and chairman of the Council for Agriculture and Rural Development in a WFP press release Wednesday. The donation will allow rice to be distributed throughout July to vulnerable groups of people.
