World Food Program Organization (WFP), is the worlds largest humanitarian agency whose primary goal is to help curb the ever surging waves of hunger in almost every part of the world. Its Mission Statement is to be considered as a living document that will be reviewed periodically. Under the umbrella of the United Nations (the U.N), the World Food Program Organization is mandated to help bring to an end the demand for food aid and subsequently do away with poverty and hunger.
In order to achieve its primary objectives, the WFP has since embarked on a series of interventions aimed at bettering the livelihoods of the poverty stricken (perhaps due to raging wars and conflicts or natural disasters such as draughts). Over the time, the WFP has been promoting world food security, meeting refugee and other emergency food demands, using their food aid in order to boost both the social and economic development, saving lives in emergency cases via food aids, improving the nutrition and quality of life of the most vulnerable people at hours of greatest need and above all helping in establishing the assets aimed at promoting the self-reliance (through labor intensive works programs etc.).
According to the WFP, a whopping eight hundred and fifty million people in the world cannot access adequate food to eat. Out of this figure, close to ninety eight percentage is from the developing countries. Most disturbing, however, is the fact that more than fifteen percent of populations of such nations are severely undernourished.
After the so called Arab Spring and the latest chaos in Syria and Mali apparently in dire need of humanitarian assistance, the figures are expected to rise and perhaps hit the all time-high mark of one billion human beings! Still, the Asian Continent bares the greatest burden with five hundred and sixty three million of its people living almost without a meal a day. Health related risks of food starvation are rumored to be the worlds major cause of deaths (mostly among the infants). Close to two point seven million children under the age of five die annually courtesy of malnutrition alone.
If you think that is all, you are greatly mistaken! WFP also estimates that close to sixty seven million school-age children attend their classes with empty stomachs all day long. When a good number of us can afford three or even four meals a day, there are hundreds of thousands out there on the verge of their untimely death at this very minute due to food starvation. And to end all this, the W.F.P estimates that it will cost over thousands of billions of US dollars. To make this dream come true, it has to begin with you today. I will tell you how.
You can be part of this awe-inspiring call about doing away with food starvation this minute by visiting the official website of the World Food Program Organization. It is here that you will get to learn more about the harsh, horrendous and devastating truths about hunger and food starvation. Lately, the Syrians who are still at war and the Malians are the worst hit by the food crisis and thus in urgent need of food aid.
