APP of the WEEK

Llanelli Star - - TECH NOW -

THE Share The Meal app is a fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive form the United Na­tions’ World Food Pro­gramme – and it aims to give you the eas­i­est route to help­ing feed mal­nour­ished chil­dren in some of the world’s poor­est na­tions.

It’s sim­ple – one tap do­nates 35p to the pro­gramme, enough to feed one per­son for a day.

Ac­cord­ing to the WFP, more than 100m peo­ple are al­ready us­ing the app to help chil­dren in places like Pales­tine, Ro­hingya, Le­banon and Ut­tar Pradesh in In­dia.

So far 34m meals have been de­liv­ered.

The app also al­lows you to cre­ate a team to raise funds to­gether, and also of­fers a Share The Meal

fil­ter for pho­tos to en­cour­age you to share them on your so­cial net­works and spread the word about the pro­gramme.

And when you do­nate, you are shown ex­actly where the money is be­ing spent.

I’m not sure there could be a cause more wor­thy of your con­sid­er­a­tion.
