JOIN HANDS FOR NEPAL, organized in Second Life© by Valsnia and Ruby Ornamental, has partnered with World Food Program (the Asian branch of this UN Organization) – May 2015.
Founded in 1961, The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security.
With the magnitude of the Earthquake in Nepal the WFP immediate put together its Nepal Earthquake response cell and has been quickly moving to support the survivors.
WFP has three main goals under its Nepal earthquake response:
1) deliver food to survivors and those who need it most.
2) provide emergency operation assistance on a massive scale.
3) help the humanitarian aid community with relief hub services.
WFP needs US $116.5 million to provide food for 1.4 million people for three months , which translates to US $27 for a person for the entire month until they are able to stabilize and organize their own means of sustenance.
JOIN HANDS FOR NEPAL – organized by a group of Second Life© residents – is supporting WFP in their mission and provide one of the most basic needs of human survival to those impacted by this massive calamity in Nepal – FOOD.Please, read more about WFP.
