The Seoul-based Korean Red Cross will give 20 tons of skim powder milk to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Wednesday as part of humanitarian aid for infants and young children there, the organization said Tuesday.

Six South Korean Red Cross officials will deliver the milk powder worth 15 million won (132,000 U.S. dollars) via road to the border town of Kaesong, it said.

The move comes after the organization late last month provided medicine and medical supplies worth 1.4 billion won to the DPRK.

The organization is also planning to send 10,000 tons of corn to the DPRK as soon as the purchasing process in China is completed, it added.
