The World Food Programme is the world's largest humanitarian organisation, and plays a crucial role in saving lives around the world including in connection with some of the most severe crises such as those in Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Yemen. Global hunger and the risk of large-scale starvation have increased significantly in recent years. More than 155 million people currently suffer from acute hunger, and 45 million risk starving to death.
