About Organization

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide. It was established in 1961 and is headquartered in Rome, Italy. The organization is a part of the United Nations system and works to provide food assistance to people affected by conflicts, natural disasters, and other emergencies.

WFP works in over 80 countries, providing food assistance to around 100 million people each year. The organization’s work is divided into two main areas: emergency assistance and development assistance. In emergency situations, WFP provides food assistance to people who are in urgent need of food due to conflicts, natural disasters, or other emergencies. In development settings, WFP works to help communities build resilience to food insecurity and achieve food security.

WFP’s operations are funded entirely by voluntary contributions from governments, companies, and individuals. The organization has won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020 for its efforts to combat hunger and improve conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas.
