Statement to the Conference of Foreign Affairs Committee Chairpersons of EU Parliaments - Paris, France (22/07/08)

Executive Director Josette Sheeran

The European Union is a vital partner for the United Nations and the World Food Programme. The support of the peoples and parliaments of Europe is critical to WFP’s ability to provide life-saving food and assistance to 90 million people this year; 80 percent of whom are women and children, including more than 3 million in Darfur alone, that depend on us everyday for their food.
