WFP has a team of spokespeople all over the world who are on stand-by 24 hours a day to answer media inquiries.
In the Ecuadorian border area, WFP links small-scale farmer associations with schools and other safety nets, with a special focus on women. From the point of view of families and schools, results are measured in terms of diversified diets for children. Women farmers explain about this new way of working and how it has improved their incomes and livelihoods. Partnering local authorities explain how this contributes to integrate Colombian refugee families. (Available also in Spanish)
WFP started a voucher programme in Domiz camp in northern Iraq in November and is currently providing 30,000 Syrians in Domiz camp with food vouchers worth US$31 per person, per month. Food vouchers can be redeemed against a list of items, including fresh produce, and because they are spent in local shops they provide a boost for the local economy.
