World Food Program - Colombia

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

WFP is the United Nations frontline agency in the fight against global hunger. WFP uses its food to: meet emergency needs and support economic and social development. It also provides the logistics support necessary to get food aid to the right people at the right time and in the right place. In 2002, WFP fed 72 million people in 82 countries, including most of the world’s refugees and internally displaced people. Together with the Colombian government and in response to the country’s difficult humanitarian situation, WFP carries out a Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation aimed at finding suitable and lasting solutions to the food problems of displaced populations.
