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 Working Together to Build a More Resilient Future in Mali http://www.wfp.org/stories/working-together-build-more-resilient-future-mali In Mali, a recent pastoral crisis, successive droughts and political instability have left many communities in a precarious situation – a situation that could be devastating if another shock hits before they can fully recover.

Participants earn cash for daily work while also creating sustainable, revenue generating activities, which benefit them, their families and their communities.   Mali Sahel Cash for assets; resilience; Mali; Sahel; Bamako; Women; Urban; Upcycling Global Cash and Vouchers Capacity Building Focus on Women Food for Assets Wed, 03 Dec 2014 10:07:49 +0000 WFP 644303 at http://www.wfp.org WFP uses its logistics expertise to build Ebola Treatment Units (For the Media) http://www.wfp.org/videos/wfp-uses-its-logistics-expertise-build-ebola-treatment-units-media Speed is of the essence right now, and the entire humanitarian community is working around the clock to get on top of this crisis. WFP is using its logistics expertise to build Ebola Treatment Units, to transport huge amounts of cargo into the affected countries and then, once it’s here, making sure its stored, managed properly so it can be sent out to remote areas where is really needed. The spread of Ebola is disrupting food trade and markets not just in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia but also the surrounding region. Many families have already seen their livelihoods affected. WFP is working to make sure that this health crisis does not become a food and nutrition crisis as well.  Aid professionals WFP in Action Logistics Preventing Hunger Responding to Emergencies Guinea Liberia Mali Sierra Leone English Africa Ebola emergency Video News Release Emergencies Logistics Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:10:14 +0000 WFP 643809 at http://www.wfp.org UNHAS: At the heart of humanitarian interventions in Mali’s North http://www.wfp.org/photos/gallery/unhas-heart-humanitarian-interventions-mali%E2%80%99s-north UNHAS: At the heart of humanitarian interventions in Mali’s North Mali heart humanitarian intervention Mali north UNHAS Local Logistics Thu, 09 Oct 2014 16:56:15 +0000 WFP 643561 at http://www.wfp.org UNHAS: At the heart of humanitarian interventions in Mali’s North http://www.wfp.org/photos/gallery/unhas-heart-humanitarian-interventions-mali%E2%80%99s-north UNHAS: At the heart of humanitarian interventions in Mali’s North Mali heart humanitarian intervention Mali north UNHAS Local Logistics Thu, 09 Oct 2014 16:56:15 +0000 WFP 643561 at http://www.wfp.org Safe, reliable transportation to the most remote regions of Northern Mali http://www.wfp.org/stories/safe-reliable-transportation-most-remote-regions-northern-mali In Mali, even at the best of times, poor infrastructure and washed out roads in the rainy season make access to remote communities a constant challenge for humanitarian workers.
