We all have witnessed the harsh time that COVID brought for us. The last two years have been a period that we never imagined. Economic and social disruption caused by pandemic has been devastating for all of us. Most of us lost our jobs, loved ones, and the environment we used to live in. Because of the challenges that the pandemic threw on our way, tens of millions of people around the world are at the risk of falling into extreme poverty, losing their mental health and financial stability. Keeping this situation in mind, FAO, together with World Food Forum, has organized this program that will promote health goals that need to be set to prevent future problems like Corona. The artwork, whether it is slam poetry, songs, or skit performances, can be submitted through the online portal of the World Food Forum.
FAO is also known as the Food and Agriculture Organization that works under the supervision of the United Nations. It has been dedicated to leading the efforts taken to defeat the huger around the world. The purpose of this organization is to achieve food security for all and make sure that everyone around the globe has access to enough quality food on a daily basis to lead healthy, active, and happy lives.
