“The only hope is that the grain in Ukraine can get out”

Eafter the agreement on safe shipping corridors in the Black Sea came into place, the cargo ship ‘Razoni’ sailed on Monday from the port of Odesa loaded with 26,000 tons of corn bound for Lebanon. It had been trapped in the harbor since the start of the war.

For Corinne Fleischer, director of the UN’s World Food Program in the Middle East and North Africa, the ship’s passage represents hope in the midst of a raging global food crisis that has far-reaching consequences in the world’s poorest areas. The UN estimates that 345 million people in 82 countries will be acutely food insecure by 2022 – mostly in Africa and the Middle East. Almost a million people are suffering from famine.
