Ukrainian grain ship docks in Djibouti

A ship carrying Ukrainian grain has docked in the East African nation of Djibouti. It’s the first grain shipment from Ukraine to Africa since the Russian invasion.

The shipment on board the freighter the Brave Commander has been arranged by the UN to get the wheat to countries at risk of starvation.

It should take about four days to offload and bag the cargo before it is taken by road to neighbouring Ethiopia, where over 20 million people are in need of food aid.

Ethiopia is experiencing the worst drought in 40 years, as well as a number of conflicts.

The shipment is a drop in the ocean compared to what is needed in the countries of East Africa – where drought is widespread.
