Japan has donated $1,500,000 million to help the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) in Lebanon repair and restore food safety labs and animal quarantine centers that were impacted by the Beirut blast.
The initiative, made in partnership with the Lebanese Ministry of Agriculture and WFP, was announced by the Ambassador of Japan Okubo Takeshi during a ceremony held at the Beirut Port.
“I hope this project will play an important role in assuring national food security in Lebanon. My message through this project is Japan always stands side by side with Lebanon in difficult times as a friend in need,” he said.
Being one of the largest economies in the world, Japan has been providing continuous support in response to Lebanon’s crises and various needs.
