S. Korea to send powdered milk to N. Korea: Red Cross

According to Yonhap (3/9/2010):

South Korea’s Red Cross said it will send 20 tons of powdered skim milk to North Korea on Wednesday as part of humanitarian aid to the impoverished neighbor.

The aid worth 156 million won (US$137,000) will be delivered on two 11-ton trucks across the inter-Korean border and unloaded in the border town of Kaesong, the Red Cross said in a release.

In January, North Korea accepted a proposal by the South to provide powdered milk along with other types of aid as humanitarian assistance.
