WFP – In philatelic appreciation

Date Published: 

The world food program (WFP), in collaboration with Bhutan post, launched yesterday a series of postal stamps, which reflect their support to various sectors in Bhutan. The stamps were launched in Thimphu as WFP celebrated its 35th anniversary. (..) School feeding has been a major activity since the start of WFP assistance in 1974, with increased enrollment and attendance as their main goals. In 2008, WFP utilised around USD 4m – donations received – in purchasing food commodities and for other assistance, such as construction of hostel and purchasing fuel-efficient stoves for schools.
