|GENEVA Air Jordan 13 XIII Retro Flint 2017 Blue Grey , Sept. 23 (Xinhua) -- The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) on Tuesday said it provided urgently-needed food assistance to more than one million civilians across Iraq who were displaced since conflict erupted in mid-June, despite a challenging security situation and the continuous movement of people.
"With the help of our partners, we managed to scale up and expand our assistance to additional areas reaching displaced families who fled with nothing but their lives and who were previously inaccessible," Jane Pearce, director of the WFP Office in Iraq Mens Air Jordan 13 Flint" Retro 2017 Blue Cheap , said in a statement.
"This month we reached people sheltering in Muthana and Thi-Qar governorates in southern Iraq for the first time, allowing us to cross the one million mark of number of people assisted by WFP," she added.
WFP has so far provided food assistance in 13 out of the 18 Iraqi governorates. The agency noted the humanitarian situation continued to deteriorate because of the fighting and that many Iraqis were living in precarious conditions without access to food, water or shelter.
Around 1.8 million Iraqis have been displaced by the conflict in Iraq since mid-June. The UN agency plans to continue to expand its food operation to assist 1.2 million displaced people by the end of the year.
The majority of the one million people assisted by WFP, received food parcels containing essential items such as rice Air Jordan 13 XIII Chicago White Black Cheap , cooking oil, wheat flour, lentils, pasta, and salt. Each parcel feeds a family of five for one month. WFP also provided emergency ready-to-eat rations that include canned food for those still on the move with no access to cooking facilities.
Before the latest crisis Mens Air Jordan 13 Altitude Retro Black Green Shoes Online , WFP was assisting about 240,00 people displaced by conflict in Iraq's al-Anbar governorate, as well as more than 180,000 refugees from the fighting in Syria who are seeking shelter in Iraq.
Alibaba Group Holding has enlisted two UK start-ups to provide financing for small British businesses looking to buy from Chinese suppliers, aiming to help cash-strapped firms access the Chinese economy.
The partnerships with iwoca and ezbob announced by Alibaba on Wednesday are a first for the Chinese company in Europe Air Jordan 13 Wheat For Sale , and are intended to provide short-term working capital to businesses that otherwise would have trouble securing funds from banks.
Alibaba's British arrangement is similar to its recently announced tie-up with LendingClub Corp in the US.
British firms looking to source cheap components or goods from Chinese suppliers apply for credit online; the start-ups review their business track records, tax returns and other data; then provide a swift decision.
"We want to make financing as easy as possible for the millions of British companies that do business through alibaba," said Wei Duan, Alibaba's European marketing and business development director.
Unlike LendingClub, a peer-to-peer loans matching service Air Jordan 13 GS Bordeaux For Sale , ezbob and iwoca would provide the financing themselves. They already lend to Amazon and eBay merchants.
Ezbob is the trading name for Orange Money. The 4-year-old company is backed by the British government's Angel CoFund and its loans are guaranteed by the EU. Iwoca, or "instant working capital," has secured financing from investors including Global Founders Capital and Redline Capital.
Both will be providing micro-loans of 50,000 pounds ($75,315) and up to qualified firms Air Jordan 13 Love Respect For Sale , at anticipated interest rates of 0.75 percent to 2 percent monthly. Iwoca Chief Executive Officer Christoph Rieche said in a statement he expects to finance 100 million pounds of deals over the next 12 months. Funds are channeled directly to Chinese suppliers.
Britain is one of Alibaba's major markets, primarily for business-to-business goods sourcing on alibaba. The Chinese company derives the lion's share of its revenue from retail platforms Taobao and Tmall, but it got its start supporting small businesses with alibaba, which Jack Ma Yun co-founded out of his Hangzhou apartment in 1999.
The service is used by businesses on the lookout for cheap products and services from China, ranging from manufacturing to components in bulk.
Its executives have said they are looking for similar providers to extend financing beyond the US to major markets such as Germany and Canada.
