Uber donates app to World Food Programme to use in Ukraine
To help distribute food in Ukraine, Uber donated an adapted version of its ‘Uber Direct’ software app to the UN World Food Programme (WFP). This is meant to help the WEP enhance its operations in Ukraine and provides food and cash to 3 million people per month. The app will further allow the WFP to coordinate a fleet of vehicles and track deliveries in real-time to densely populated areas where larger vehicles might not be able to travel safely. The WFP is already using the app in Dnipro, with plans to expand to Chernivtsi, Kyiv, Lviv, and Vinnytsia.
