World Food Programme's largest partner, World Vision, congratulates Nobel Peace Prize win

Andrew Morley, World Vision International President & CEO, said: “We partner with the WFP in many of the world’s toughest places, where the meal children receive through our school feeding programme is often their only source of nutrition.

“Hunger robs children of their God-given potential, gnaws away at hope, and plunges millions into an uncertain future.

“But working alongside the WFP, I’ve seen children’s lives transformed with more energetic, happier students, better grades, and a chance to succeed in life.

“This, in turn, is connected to families’ security, health, livelihoods, the economy – and ultimately peace. So we congratulate our colleagues at the World Food Programme for this award, and look forward to our continued partnership.”
