WFP Hunger Activists were invited to a private briefing by Gian Carlo Cirri, WFP Yemen Country Director, during his recent visit to the UK.
Gian Carlo has over 15 years’ experience working for WFP. First as a consultant in Yemen in 1995, his career has taken him to Algeria, Cameroon and Sao Tome before becoming a Country Director in Niger, Mauritania and now back in Yemen where he started out with WFP.
“I came to London to attend an event organised by Chatham House, I took this opportunity to brief young student activists, I could sense a lot of interest in WFP activities, it was very enriching” said Gian Carlo.
Caroline Hurford, Public Affairs Officer in London agreed: “Whenever one of our field folk pass through, it’s always good to hear about WFP’s work, and some personal experiences, straight from the horses mouth”.
