Training of World Food Program technicians in East Africa

To help the World Food Program (WFP) carry out its mission, Renault Trucks deployed a mobile training unit in five East African countries for three months in 2012, to train WFP mechanics in the most advanced maintenance techniques.

The United Nations’ World Food Program works to combat hunger by guaranteeing access to food in the poorest parts of the world. Reliable trucks are vital to their logistics system for bringing food to people in emergency situations. More than 100 of these are Renault trucks, which carry food supplies under the most extreme conditions.

From Uganda to Southern Sudan, Rwanda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi, Renault Trucks specialists trained the WFP teams on site.
