CONFLICT IS PUSHING MILLIONS INTO HUNGER

War. Violence. Persecution. Today, desperate families in places like Afghanistan and northern Ethiopia are barely surviving. We urgently need your help to send them lifesaving meals and aid.

Saving Lives. Changing Lives.

The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has been on the frontlines 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.
