    New WFP Report Proves Link Between Hunger and Migration (For the Media)

    At a time when a record-high number of people have been forced to flee their homes across the world, a new study by the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) clearly establishes that high levels of food insecurity lead to higher levels of migration across borders. “At WFP, we are doing everything we can to care for refugees who are hungry or starving across the world,” said David Beasley, WFP Executive Director. “With millions of our brothers and sisters having fled their homes and facing so much hardship, it is our duty to shed light on their tragic situation.” The report is launched at a moment when multiple protracted crises and a period of political transition challenge the levels of international food and humanitarian assistance provided for refugees and people who have been forcibly displaced.

    We'll Call You Back: WFP's 2 Way Communications in DRC

    In Goma, WFP sends out automated SMS surveys to student key informants to collect food prices in the local markets. The information is then recorded into an Interactive Voice Response system that beneficiaries can call to listen to information on food prices, WFP distribution dates, and phone survey dates free of charge. For more information on the project, please visit the VAM blog. http://mvam.org/
