WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran congratulates the winners of World Food Prize

Josette Sheeran
United Nation World Food Programme (WFP) Executive Director Josette Sheeran gives her warm congratulatory message to President John Kofi Agyekum Kufuor of Ghana and President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva of Brazil on winning the highly respected World Food Prize. The said announcement was done last June 21 at Washington USA in line with the recognition of individuals fighting hunger at home and abroad. The said prize is in its 25th year and created by Nobel Peace Prize winner Norman Borlaug. And for the first time the recognition was given to national leaders like Presidents Kufuor and Lula who played a very important role in combating hunger in their country.

President John Kufuor of Ghana has been a long standing supported of WFP and appointed as Ambassador Against Hunger since 2009. In his term as president of Ghana he improved food security and reduced hunger through public and private sector initiatives. He also targets the issue of malnutrition in his country which all his efforts were recognized internationally.

President Kufuor and President Lula have both been strong supporters of WFP especially throughout the recent years of high price volatility, which have pushed the number of hungry people in the world to nearly one billion.

With this, Sheeran encourages world leaders to take their part on this global campaign against hunger. And for others who wanted to take part on this campaign visit to know what you can do to fight hunger.
