12 YEARS OF CONFLICT
After 12 years of conflict, over half of Syria’s population is experiencing hunger. The recent earthquakes have only caused further devastation.
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, providing lifesaving meals to 160 million of the world’s most vulnerable people in more than 120 countries and territories this year.
What causes hunger?
Conflict is the #1 driver of hunger, destroying lives and homes while creating instability.
Due to societal norms and economic challenges, women in many countries eat last and least.
How we fight hunger
When conflict erupts or natural disaster strikes, WFP is there. We feed families on the front lines of our planet’s most dangerous and complicated crises.
Providing food for children in school increases attendance and improves focus. We are the largest provider of school meals in the world.
We help small-scale farmers not only recover from disasters, but adapt to be resilient against them through skills training and resources.
