  • Achieving Zero Hunger in Nigeria iiiiiii Zero hunger is more than an ambitious dream of a world of full stomachs—it’s a Global Goal that world leaders have set for 2030. It’s an end to chronic hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity, and it’s what humanity deserves, a necessary condition to reach our full potential. And the closer we get, the more we all benefit. But to arrive at zero in 15 short years, we need your voice. W FP /H en ry B on gy er ei rw e Who we are • The World Food Programme (WFP) is a voluntarily funded member of the United Nations family • We are the world’s largest humanitarian agency, assisting some 80 million people in 80 countries with food or cash • We save lives in emergencies, and help rebuild lives once the emergency has passed • Our vision is one where every woman, man, girl and boy gets the food they need for an active and healthy life “The reality is that the WFP is still the best-placed, best-resourced global agency for distributing food when disaster strikes. If it needs to build bridges and roads, it can. If it has to drop food out of planes, it will. Its staff have even used elephants, yaks and donkeys to fulfil what remains its core mission: to deliver food into the hands of the hungry poor.” - The Guardian, September 2015
