    Cesaria Evora - Mar de Canal

    Cesaria Évora, the popular Cape Verdean singer who died this weekend, was also a WFP Ambassador Against Hunger. She took on the role in 2003 and dedicated one of the songs on her album “Mar de Canal” to WFP's work fighting hunger. This is the video of that song. Cesaria also gave a concert in Rome to support WFP's programmes to provide free school meals to hungry children around the world.

    Vera Goes To School

    In 1990, as a seven-year-old school girl in Cape Verde, Vera Tavares started receiving WFP school meals. Those meals kept her in school where she studied and finished her education. She now works for the ministry of education. Against the old images of the seven-year-old Vera, we hear the Vera of today talking about how school meals changed her life.
