About Organization

The World Food Programme (WFP) is a United Nations agency that was established in 1961. Its primary mission is to combat hunger and malnutrition around the world by providing food assistance and promoting sustainable development.

WFP operates in more than 80 countries and provides assistance to approximately 80 million people annually. Its activities include emergency response to natural disasters and conflicts, as well as longer-term food assistance programs that aim to improve food security and promote economic development.

In addition to its food assistance programs, WFP also works to strengthen national and local food systems, promote social protection measures, and support education and nutrition programs. The organization is funded by voluntary donations from governments, private sector partners, and individuals, and operates with the goal of achieving a world with zero hunger.
