We are huge advocates and supporters of the World Food Programme, the largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger.

Maybe you looked at the title of this post, and you were instantly turned off. Possibly you get tired of hearing about how people all around the world are going hungry and need our help. I know that were are inundated with charities in this day and age, but it doesn’t mean the need is any less greater. In fact, World Food Programme is the largest humanitarian agency that is fighting hunger. That’s right! (via My Devotional Thoughts: World Food Programme: You Against Hunger)

The World Food Program helps people in need who have lost everything. They need yours and mine help through this holiday season. I have teamed up with Global Team 200 to help spread the word. When tragedies strike they depend on the WFP to help with donations. Why not help out today. If you have ever been hungry then you know how they feel. If you haven’t then you don’t know that it’s not a pleasant feeling to be hungry.

After a week of gluttony, it may seem strange that I’m writing about world hunger. But, it seems I’m never more aware of all that we have than during this season. So it makes sense then that on this last day of 2012, a day of reflection, that we talk about giving. (via M.a.D Monday: World Food Programme | The Right Hand Mom)

Around the world, 870 million people do not have enough to eat. What makes this all the more difficult is the knowledge that there is enough food in the world today for everyone to have the nourishment necessary for a healthy and productive life.

On this last day of 2012 I want to share the World Food Programme and the work they do. They work to help with hunger after the devastation brought by hurricanes, drought, and armed conflict. My life has never been touched by any of these things but even if they did I have certain advantages that would help me and my family through obstacles like this just because I live in the country I do. Many others around the globe are not so fortunate and when faced with disasters like these their very lives hang in the balance and the World Food Programme saves lives.

In the developed world, food security in most instances isn’t something we readily understand or can relate to. Grab the kids in your life, “click” on the banner on the top of this post, and take “one food” they love to eat, and find out how you and your family can feed it back and provide food to kids in need in a developing country. WE FEED BACK is an innovative, global campaign building on the premise that if we all do a little, we can achieve a lot. To put it in a nutshell, it’s about sharing food and changing lives.

Have you ever thought about what you would do if an emergency struck? I often think about it now that I am a mother. Protecting my family is my number one priority and it’s hard to imagine what would happen if tragedy really did strike. Even though a lot of us try and prepare, it’s not something anyone can ever be totally ready for, in my opinion. (via Ring in the New Year by Helping Others {through the World Food Programme} | Hike.

Fortunately NGO’s such as World Food Programme (WFP) is there to help. The WFP has worked alongside the UNHCR (The United Nation’s Refugee Arm) to provide a regular supply of food to the families. While UNHCR is distributing such necessary supplies as blankets for fuel and cooking, the WFP has been supplying “dry rations” over the winter months that refugees can cook themselves. The Dry rations include rice, bulgur, wheat, yellow split peas, sugar and salt, which are provided along with a daily allotment of bread. (via The Crisis in Syria and how you can help | Thirdeyemom)
