The World Food Program has developed and begun distributing a new ready-to-eat food product to the thousands of children affected by the flooding in Pakistan in August.
Wawa Mun is a chickpea paste produced in Pakistani factories. It provides a day’s worth of nutrients and minerals in a 50-gram serving that can be eaten straight from its packet.
“Wawa Mum has a number of advantages during emergency situations like the floods in Pakistan,” said Dominique Frankefort, deputy director of WFP’s operations in Pakistan. “It’s light, you can eat it immediately and it’s made right here in Pakistan from an ingredient that people know and like.”
