WFP and International Tea Day

WFP and International Tea Day

The World Food Programme (WFP) is the leading humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide, delivering food assistance in emergencies and working with communities to improve nutrition and build resilience. A portion of STAG & MANOR sales is donated to the WPF, which means you can help fight hunger by just shopping STAG & MANOR today.

Today is #InternationalTeaDay! Meet this 4-year-old, whose dream is “to invite other children from around the world to play with and drink tea with me.”

Mohamad's eyes light up when he hears the pot boiling in the corner of his family’s makeshift shelter in Lebanon. He continues that delight as he performs the master of ceremonies ritual of pouring the tea under his father’s watchful eye. There is brief silence followed by some slurping and a sigh of satisfaction as the family gathers around steaming glasses of chai.

Making tea is an opportunity for communion, for togetherness, and a reminder of those same rituals that used to take place back home just over the mountains in Syria.

WFP's cash-transfers enable refugee families like Mohamad's to cover their basic needs and maintain rituals that are more important in a disrupted life. While Mohamad’s mother is not especially keen to have a highly caffeinated 4-year-old running around, she does want the tea tradition and that little taste of home to continue.
