ROME - WFP has honoured King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, for his generous support of the agency's work during 2008. King Abdullah was named 'Champion in the Battle Against Hunger' at a dinner in Davos, Switzerland, during the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum.
"King Abdullah's generosity has not only moved the world but has saved many lives in this year of challenge," said Josette Sheeran, Executive Director of WFP.
