Empowering smallholder farmers to reduce post-harvest loss
Description: Post-harvest food loss is a major contributor to hunger and under nutrition affecting farming families across Africa. Farmers who chose to participate in WFP’s Zero Food Loss Initiative have seen a drastic reduction in grain losses (from 40% to less than 2%), a tripling of incomes, and availability of food throughout the lean season. Simple, airtight technology paired with effective training has an immediate impact on farmers and their families, moving many from subsistence farming to surplus, where they become active market participants. There is also an impact on family health, as airtight storage and improved crop handling reduces the presence of aflatoxin moulds, one of the leading causes of cancer in Sub-Saharan Africa. Now, smallholder farmers across Africa have a choice for a better future.

WFP Fighting Famine with Finance in Drought Stricken Somalia
Description: In February 2017, WFP reached almost a million people in Somalia using a combination of food distributions and digital cash cards that allow people to buy food in local markets-that’s more than twice the number of people reached in January. Close to 3 million people cannot meet their daily food requirements and require urgent humanitarian assistance, while another 3.3 million Somalis need livelihood support to keep from sliding into crisis.
