About Us

The World Food Programme (WFP) - Yemen is the food-assistance branch of the United Nations. It is the world's largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security. Founded in 1961, the WFP provides food assistance to millions of individuals worldwide, particularly those in conflict-affected countries.

The organization delivers food in emergency situations and works with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience in the face of various challenges, such as climate change and conflict. The WFP's work is vital for communities that are unable to produce or procure enough food for themselves.

The WFP is funded entirely by voluntary donations, primarily from governments of the world, but also from corporations and private donors. The organization's efforts have been globally recognized, including winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2020 for its efforts to combat hunger, improve conditions for peace in conflict-affected areas, and prevent the use of hunger as a weapon of war and conflict.
