Like other girls, she was encouraged to attend school regularly in order to qualify for the food package distributed at the end of the month. Today, she is a skilled midwife who attributes her success to the take-home ration programme and the related girls’ education scholarship programme, both of which motivated her to work hard in secondary school and at midwifery college.    Ghana Local Africa Tue, 31 Mar 2015 16:30:53 +0000 Vera Boohene 645840 at http://www.wfp.org Canada And WFP: Saving Lives By Providing The Right Food At The Right Time http://www.wfp.org/photos/gallery/canada-and-un-world-food-programme-saving-lives-providing-right-food-right-time Every year, WFP provides food assistance to more than 80 million people in 75 of the world’s poorest countries with the support of donors such as Canada. Before starting a programme, WFP determines the right food, because a successful response depends on nutritionally appropriate food. Malnutrition affects millions around the world -- nearly half of all deaths of children under the age of 5 are due to undernutrition. Canada and WFP are working together towards a world with Zero Hunger.  Bangladesh Ghana Guatemala Haiti Mali South Sudan Sudan Tanzania, United Republic Of Mon, 02 Feb 2015 15:13:16 +0000 WFP 641628 at http://www.wfp.org 10 Facts About Hunger In Ghana http://www.wfp.org/stories/10-facts-about-hunger-ghana Here are 10 facts that give the measure of the hunger situation in Ghana.
