Charity Miles gives boost to world hunger relief

Runners, walkers and bikers have given an extra boost to the fight against global hunger. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) said last week it has confirmed a new donation from Charity Miles, the free exercise app.

Every time someone runs, walks or bikes using this app, a donation is generated for WFP, paid for by corporate sponsors. A donation of US $ 16,600 from Charity Miles will provide over 64,000 school meals to WFP.

Recently, because of low funding, WFP has been forced to cut back on food aid programs. Donations from Charity Miles and others now take on even more urgency. Wars in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, and the Central African Republic have drained WFP resources.

The UN food agency relies on voluntary donations. However, there has not been enough to keep up with the scale of these disasters.

In addition, WFP is providing aid in the countries affected by the Ebola virus. Overall, WFP operates in over 70 countries and is the largest hunger relief organization.

Over 28 different charities are supported by Charity Miles. The corporate sponsors include Humana, Lifeway Foods, Kenneth Cole, Johnson & Johnson and Timex. Since its start in 2012, Charity Miles has donated close to 200,000 meals to WFP. You can download the app at Charity Miles and become an ambassador for hunger relief.
