WFP School Meals In Gaza Help Children Stay Fed And Fit
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) provided WFP with a generous donation of sports gear for school children in Gaza. More than 80,000 children in 125 schools across the Gaza Strip now have access to excellent sports equipment, increasing the opportunity for girls and boys to practice sports. The children also benefit from the nutritious morning snack that is also part of the IOC donation to WFP’s school meals programme. The daily snack improves children's in-class performance as it tackles short-term hunger during the school day.
