Announcing a partnership between the UN World Food Programme and the Millenia Villages Project, WFP chief Josette Sheeran said, "Hunger is on the march and is right now the most threatening Millennium Development Goal". "Today one out of every six human beings wakes up hungry and is not sure how to find food for himself. When over one billion people go to bed hungry and wake up hungry, it requires an urgent action," she added.
