WFO

For those of you out there who are currently involved or who are interested in becoming involved with worthwhile charitable foundations, please take a look at the World Food Programme.

The WFP aids in emergencies to bring food to victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters as well as in the aftermath of emergencies to assist communities as they rebuild.

WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.

Since 1962, WFP has pursued a vision of the world in which every person has access at all times to food to maintain an active and healthy life. WFP works in conjunction with sister UN agencies in Rome, The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agriculture and Development (IFAD), as well as other government, UN and NGO partners.

In 2009 WFP plans to reach more than 100 million people with food assistance.

“If people don’t have enough to eat only one out of three things happens: They either revolt, they migrate, or they die.”
