World Food Programme (WFP)

World Food Programme (WFP) Logo

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency. It helps poor households affected by hunger and AIDS by using food aid and other resources to address prevention, care and support. WFP’s food assistance helps keep parents alive longer, enables orphans and vulnerable children to stay in school, permits out-of-school youth to secure viable livelihoods and enables tuberculosis patients to complete their treatment. WFP works in partnership with governments, other United Nations agencies, non-governmental organizations and communities and helps people-regardless of their HIV status-who lack adequate food to secure nutrition and food security.
