ADDRESS OF JOHN PAUL II
TO HON. JAMES T. MORRIS,
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
OF THE WORLD FOOD PROGRAMME

Tuesday, 27 January 2004

 

Mr Executive Director,

I am pleased to greet you and to express once more my deep appreciation of all that the World Food Programme does to assist those who suffer from hunger and malnutrition throughout the world.

The complexities of our modern era are such that the joint commitment and efforts of many different organizations are necessary if the nutritional needs of millions of men, women and children are to be adequately met. This is no easy task. But I am confident that, with the help and support of countless people of good will, the World Food Programme will continue to be an important instrument of solidarity and assistance in the ongoing battle against undernourishment and starvation.

I gladly assure you and all involved in this essential undertaking of my prayers. May Almighty God bless your work with success.
