WFP Annual Report 2004
As 2004 opened, we were providing relief to thousands of earthquake victims in Bam, Iran. Tragically, as 2005 approached, WFP was responding to the unprecedented loss of life and livelihoods in tsunami-ravaged areas around the Indian Ocean. In the months in between, we struggled with the incredibly complex challenges in the Darfur region of Sudan and across the border in Chad, bringing food aid to millions of people displaced by conflict, hunger and extreme poverty. By year's end, we had delivered US$2.9 billion worth of food aid to 113 million people in 80 countries, including 26 million people in Iraq through one of the largest bilateral operations in WFP history.
