To get to #ZeroHunger , food is not enough. 🍛 Food assistance can save lives in an emergency, but the right #nutrition  at the right time can change lives and break the cycle of poverty. #SDG2  pledges to end hunger and improve nutrition for all—and it is the priority of WFP.

Despite transport challenges, @WFP  has dispatched over 148,000 m² of vital humanitarian cargo 😷 to 173 countries 🌍 in support of the #COVID19  response. Thanks to generous donors like @eu_echo  for supporting WFP Common Services and making this possible!

At least 21 people have lost their lives and more than 10,000 have been affected by flash floods and landslides in #TimorLeste . Humanitarians are supporting the Government-led response and providing emergency assistance.

❝Our children are more important than us.❞ Looming famine in #Yemen  is making parents like Safiah, face impossible choices. Safiah often skips meals so her children can eat. Without urgently needed funding, famine will be a stark reality. #FightFamine  #YemenCrisisCrisis 

#Mozambique : ‘The worst part was hearing the gunshots and screams and wondering, will we be next?’ WFP readies emergency assistance for more than 50,000 people fleeing attacks in the northern province of Cabo Delgado.

#TimorLeste  is experiencing the worst flooding in decades. This coincides with the maize harvest season and it comes as the country faces increased food prices due to COVID19 lockdowns. WFP is assessing the implications this will have on food security. #CycloneSeroja
