I guess I missed that part, but when did Haya become goodwill ambassador for the UN World Food Program? That is so great that she is doing this. Thanks for the pictures, fanletizia.

Princess Haya urges world community to reach out to the hungry in Malawi

Dec.28/(Petra)-- As the Goodwill Ambassador for the UN World Food Program(WFP), Her Royal Highness Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, who is wife of UAE Heir Apparent and Defense Minister Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashed Al Maktum on Wednesday made her first field visit meeting some of the nearly 5 million people in Malawi threatened by severe food shortages and witnessing their struggle for survival. During her one-day visit, Princess Haya attended a food distribution in Chiradzulu District, one of the hardest-hit in the south, and visited Malawi's biggest hospital, where mothers bring their children for treatment, often walking miles in the hope of rescuing them from life- threatening malnutrition. "I have talked to several families who are receiving assistance from WFP, but the people of Chiradzulu are fighting silently for their survival, and I hope that my visit today will help carry their voice to my part of the world and beyond," said Princess Haya. WFP is assisting more than 225,000 people in Chiradzulu, or 80% of the population. But because of extreme poverty and the ravages of HIV/AIDS, people are unable to find alternative sources of food and this year's bad harvest has triggered unusually high malnutrition rates. In Chiradzulu District, Princess Haya also visited a primary school that has served as a distribution point since August for hundreds of food insecure families, which each month receive a ration of 50 kilograms of maize, 10 kilograms of pulses and a litre of oil. More than 900 students at the school are included in an emergency school feeding programme, which will start in January and will double the number of children being reached nationally. The programme will help reduce the significant numbers of school dropouts caused by hunger. "Poverty is often only a file on someone's desk until they are confronted with its realities," said Princess Haya. "It is unforgivable that, in this day and age, people are still living under such dire circumstances and are suffering from extreme hunger and poverty." The newly appointed WFP Goodwill Ambassador also visited Moyo House, Malawi's largest therapeutic feeding centre, where severely malnourished children receive treatment and food aid. "These children are fighting for their lives, and what stands between them and death is a nutritious meal that their mothers cannot afford, but we certainly can," Princess Haya said. WFP's mission also involves providing food aid so that other children never reach the stage of acute or severe malnourishment where they need to be taken to facilities such as Moyo House. "The so-called 'lean season' in Malawi is the worst time of year since hunger continues from January until the harvest in March. Even if we have a good harvest, poverty and HIV/AIDS continue to threaten livelihoods for years," said Dom Scalpelli, WFP Country Director in Malawi. "The fact that Princess Haya chose Malawi for her first field visit is very significant to remind the world that the chronic food crisis in Southern Africa needs continuous support until longer-term solutions are found," he said. "Until then, emerging donors for WFP can make a big difference, and one of the best examples are the Gulf States, which provided WFP with US$26 million over the past three years." WFP currently faces a shortfall of US$25 million for its operation in Malawi, and urgently needs vital commodities such as corn-soya blend and vegetable oil for the months ahead. Princess Haya was appointed a WFP Goodwill Ambassador in October, and is the first Arab and the first woman to take up this position. Her appointment was supported by UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, making her the second Goodwill Ambassador ever for WFP. Princess Haya also established the first food aid NGO in the Arab world, "Tkiyet Um Ali", a unique initiative she founded in Jordan to provide food aid and social services to the poor. WFP is the world's largest humanitarian agency: each year, we give food to an average of 90 million poor people to meet their nutritional needs, including 61 million hungry children, in at least 80of the world's poorest countries.

This is a great thing for Haya. Malawi get some attention they surely deserved as they're on the verge of national hunger (and was declared as state of emergency couple months ago).

Thanks purple_platinum. I think Haya makes a perfect ambassador with her extrovert personality. I hope the princess personally promoting this program really makes a difference in these impoverished areas. Kudos to her.

As UN Agency Advocate, Princess Haya Spotlights Hunger in Ethiopia

While travelling to Ethiopia as the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Jordan urged the donor community to continue providing food aid for the millions of Ethiopians plagued by hunger.

After visits to WFP projects around the country, Princess Haya said yesterday in the Ethiopia capital of Addis Ababa that food aid was more vital than ever in saving lives and helping millions of people escape poverty.

"In Ethiopia, a combination of complex factors every year leave thousands upon thousands of people struggling to find enough food to eat, clean water to drink and proper medicines to take," said Princess Haya, the agency's second Goodwill Ambassador and the first Arab and first woman to assume the position.

I'm confused. How has Haya "come up" since becoming Shk Mo's wife? She's always been involved in charitable causes. She was even competing in endurance riding before meeting him. These are the same things she did before marrying. Now granted she's been named an UN ambassador, but not much else is different. Does making her an ambassador make her accomplished now than before? If so, wow. She's come a long way....

when i meant come up (in whatever context) - i meant come up in status, in levels of society. from a princess to a rulers wife.

she competes in endurance riding, but always seems to drop out, even when she races with sheikh mohammed.

Yes, I understand your use of come up, and that's how I used it in my post. My point is that not much has changed for her since marrying Shk Mohammad. Except for her position as an ambassador to the UN, nothing much has changed for her...as far as accomplishments goes. While it is a priviledge to be able to be apart of something like this, it does't make her more accomplished than before. IMO, it just adds to everything else that she has already done prior to and after she married. Plus, her title hasn't changed. She's still a princess.

actually, alot has changed, supposedly she is the first arab to be in the UN position - which she repeated numerous times at the press confrence she held.

another thing would be heading up the dubai equestrian club - which as appointed by maktoum, but we all know it was done by mohammed bin rashid (the equestrian club position puts her in the position of her sister princess alia - not just team harmony).

she did not accomplish much before being married, because she was never in jordan to accomplish much, she was to busy jumping around europe behind her trainer. it was only after her fathers death that she finally settled...... in dubai.

Well it appears she's proud about being the first Arab to be in a UN position. What's wrong with that? Many of groups of people are always happy about being the "first" in something or another. Forgot about the equestrian club position. :o Also, Haya was pursuing a dream that apparently she had for a long time. I can't see how it would be a problem for anyone to follow there dreams.

IMO, she did accomplish a lot before marrying. However, maybe you missed or tend to ignore the things she did while she was in Jordan, and while being abroad. I'm too lazy, and that is really sad, to go search and type up information about the things she has done before marrying. Some people make the situation seem as if being married to Shk Mohammad has made her somehow. While she may have gained a few positions she didn't have at first, Haya was well known before becoming married, and her list of accomplishments prior to marrying speak for themselves.
