The U.S. Government has donated food aid to benefit rural Djiboutians who have been affected by the chronic drought in this arid country. The $2.5 million worth food contribution will be distributed by the World Food Programme (WFP). This donation is in response to the Djibouti government's drought appeal and will benefit approximately 70,000 rural residents during the current dry season.
Djibouti’s strategic location and moderate form of Islam position the country as an important partner to the United States Government (USG). USAID reestablished its office here in 2003 and has since provided development assistance for basic health services, basic education, democracy and good governance.
