Harvest has been celebrated for centuries as a season of plenty. Yet in 2022, the number of people living in hunger and poverty is at an all-time high. Today, more than 811 million people around the world face chronic food insecurity and do not know where their next meal will come from.
At Christian Aid, we know we are stronger when we stand together. When we work in partnership, we achieve the greatest impact.
One of our long-standing partners is the World Food Programme (WFP), the world’s leading humanitarian agency working to improve food security. We are working with the WFP to tackle the needs of displaced people in Bangladesh, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
We currently work with WFP in three countries
Our programmes aim to break the cycle of food insecurity and support people to re-establish their self-reliance.
Christian Aid and the World Food Programme are standing together.
We partner with the WFP because it has the operational ability, scale and resources to deliver assistance to those in greatest need. Christian Aid has deep connections with local communities, so our teams on the ground are able to direct aid where it is needed the most.
Christian Aid’s approach involves working in partnership with communities. People are at the heart of all we do. We ensure that they participate fully in this work and tell us what is most needed in their homes and communities.
Standing together, we are providing a lifeline for the families who need this support so urgently. The support we supply through this partnership is flexible and adaptable to local contexts, giving us the ability to deliver what communities really need, and to change as their needs evolve over time.
