Helping Those in Need of Food Assistance


The World Food Programme is the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger on the planet. They do amazing things every day in every corner of the world that needs the greatest help.

The World Food Programme recently released their 2011 Year in Review. It is well worth a read if you have a chance. According to the report the World Food Programme’s 2011 food assistance reached nearly 100 million people in 75 countries around the world. The vast majority — nearly 83 million — were women and children. They also provided 3.6 million metric tons of food assistance to people in need.

It was also wonderful to read that in 2011 the World Food Programme raised $11.9 million from their online audience. In fact, you can give to the World Food Programme online now. The WFP is entirely funded by volunteer donations.
