Facebook and the U.N. World Food Programme continue to engage in innovative ways to end hunger. In 2017, Facebook’s Disaster Maps helped WFP and other NGO’s understand affected populations’ needs more quickly. Disaster Maps use aggregated social media information to show where aid is needed most. Additionally, after the unprecedented hurricanes in the Caribbean, Facebook made a generous contribution to assist WFP’s response and telecommunications management.
