HELP US SAVE CHILDREN FROM HUNGER

All children deserve to have enough to eat. But today, a child dies every 10 seconds from hunger. We need your help to send lifesaving food to the world's most vulnerable children.

Saving Lives. Changing Lives.

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has been on the front lines of the world’s worst hunger crises, fighting hunger and famine since 1962. Right now we’re taking on our largest scale-up ever in response to COVID-19, providing lifesaving meals to 109 million of the world’s most vulnerable people in more than 80 countries this year.
