wfp_logoThe World Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide.
In emergencies, we get food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. After the cause of an emergency has passed, we use food to help communities rebuild their shattered lives.
WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.

WFP0Born in 1961, WFP pursues a vision of the world in which every man, woman and child has access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. We work towards that vision with our sister UN agencies in Rome — the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) — as well as other government, UN and NGO partners.
On average, WFP reaches more than 90 million people with food assistance in 80 countries each year. About 12,000 people work for the organization, most of them in remote areas, directly serving the hungry poor.

    WFP は飢えている人たちに食糧を届ける。

    IFAD は農業をするための資金を供与したり融資したりする。

    WFP は今すぐに食べる物を送る。食べた後にはなにも残らないが、少なくとも飢えた人たちは救われる。

    IFAD は種を送る。今すぐ食べられるわけではないが、次の年からの継続的な収穫があれば、飢えから遠ざかることができる。

    WFP の人道援助 (humanitarian aid)
    IFAD の持続可能な開発 (sustainable development)
