From displaced families to schoolchildren and subsistence farmers, WFP provides 4.3 million tons of food to nearly 90 million people each year.
Families in Crisis
Natural disasters, poverty, persecution, conflict and extreme weather turn people’s lives upside down. WFP helps them stay in their homes, get the food they need, build infrastructure and get back on their feet.
Children are innocent victims of the forces that causes hunger. They are the most vulnerable to malnutrition and can face a lifetime of ill health as a result. WFP ensures they get the nutrients and education they deserve.
Women & Girls
In nearly two-thirds of countries around the world, women are more likely than men to suffer from hunger and malnourishment. WFP provides them with the food and resources they need to reach their full potential.
It’s a cruel irony that half the world’s hungry people are small-scale farmers. They rely on modest gardens to feed their families, yet they lack basic modern resources to make the most of their crops.
When they are forced from their homes by conflict or can’t leave because they don’t have the means, WFP makes sure the most vulnerable people get the food and resources they need to survive and thrive.
Food saves lives, feeds dreams, and changes futures.
