The World

April 19, 1989

Sudan relief organizers said bureaucracy, slow donor support and bad planning have forced them to reduce a relief effort intended to save millions of people in the southern Sudan war zone from starvation and malnutrition. Officials of Operation Lifeline-Sudan said they now expect the organization to provide less than half the 100,000 tons of relief goods believed necessary if a second consecutive summer disaster is to be avoided. U.N. organizers have given up their goal of completing the $132-million operation by the end of April and say it will continue as long as allowed by the rains, which normally begin in May.
