Blog entry Where in the world did your rice go?

19 January 2011

Since Freerice began doing what it does best in 2007, Freericers have raised enough rice to feed over 4.3 million people.

Here are just a few of the places in the world where your rice and the World Food Programme have helped reduce hunger, and put smiles back on hungry faces:

In Myanmar we helped feed people whose lives were affected by cyclone Nargis, and in the immediate aftermath to feed 750,000 cyclone affected people.

In Bangladesh we helped 27,000 refugees from Myanmar sheltering at Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh.

In Nepal we helped feed 108,000 Bhutanese refugees.

In Cambodia we helped feed 13,500 women for almost 2 months as part of WFP’s Mother and Child Health programme (monthly take-home rations of 4 kg of rice for pregnant and nursing women).

In Uganda we fed 66,000 school children.

From January 2011, all rice raised through Freerice will be going to help the people of Haiti. You can find out more about why Haiti needs our help here.

Thank you Freericers for all that you do! Let’s see what we can do this year.
