WFP Annual Report 2003

WFP was put to extraordinary tests in 2003, fighting hunger in a world that sometimes seems intent on producing ever more hungry people. Political divisions, violent conflict, terrorism, natural disasters and the unyielding pandemic of HIV/AIDS all came together to challenge the limits of WFP and the United Nations family. The agency began 2003 already faced with unprecedented needs around the world - US$1.8 billion in Africa alone - and finished the year having delivered close to twice that: an astounding US$3.3 billion of assistance to more than 104 million hungry and food-insecure people around the world.
