For Ukraine: Uber donates app to World Food Programme

On Wednesday, Uber (UBER.N) said that it had given a customized version of its “Uber Direct” software program to the United Nations’ World Food Programme to aid in the distribution of food in Ukraine.

In a joint statement with Uber, the WFP said it is expanding operations in Ukraine and expects to be able to distribute food and cash to 3 million people per month by June.

The WFP will be able to organize a fleet of vehicles and track delivery in real time to densely populated regions where larger trucks may be unable to go safely.

The World Food Programme is already using the app in Dnipro, with plans to extend to Chernivsti, Kyiv, Lviv, and Vinnystia, according to the organization.
