German Government Donation of US$ 1.4 million to WFP Cambodia

News detail:

The German Government has donated US$ 1.4 million to WFP. The donation comes at a critical time, as the current global economic crisis is having significant effects on food security, notably for the most vulnerable groups such as women and children.

 

The support will contribute in alleviating the hunger gap and achieving longer term goals in fighting hunger, malnutrition, illiteracy and poor health which are both causes and consequences of poverty.

WFP Cambodia will channel the donation through WFP’s school meals and HIV/AIDS programmes. 521,000 food insecure people will benefit from this contribution, out of which 445,000 will be primary school students and 67,000 HIV beneficiaries, including family members.
