The stamp depicts a world map made of food-producing seeds and a hand with a double symbolism is recreated; on the one hand, it works for a world with Zero Hunger providing the fruits needed for universal support, but which in turn is also the hand that includes the necessary food.WFP is a humanitarian organization that fights hunger around the globe. It is part of the United Nations system and is funded by voluntary donations. It was founded in 1961 in order that all men, women and children have access to food needed for an active and healthy life, and since then has not stopped working.
