About US:
United Nations World
Food Programme (WFP) is the world’s largest humanitarian agency, fighting
hunger worldwide. The mission of WFP is to help the world achieve Zero Hunger
in our lifetimes. Every day, WFP works worldwide to ensure that no child goes
to bed hungry and that the poorest and most vulnerable, particularly women and
children, can access the nutritious food they need. In emergencies, WFP gets
food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict
and natural disasters. After an emergency, WFP uses food to help communities
rebuild their lives. On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with
food assistance in 80 countries each year. The organization has the global
footprint, deep field presence and local knowledge and relationships necessary
to provide access to food and contribute to lasting solutions, especially in
many of the world’s most remote and fragile areas.
Brief description of WFP in Uganda
WFP delivers food
assistance in emergencies and work with communities to improve nutrition and
build resilience. WFP provides life-saving food assistance and livelihood
opportunities to refugees in Uganda. In addition, WFP assists the most
vulnerable people in Karamoja with food and nutrition assistance. Finally, WFP
works with smallholder farmers and links them to markets.
As Uganda strives to
achieve Zero Hunger by 2030 and become a middle-income country by 2040, WFP is
also assessing its relevance and repositioning its role in Uganda.
