Rice generated by Internet game to feed cyclone victims
Survivors of the cyclone which ravaged Myanmar last month will soon receive rice generated by the popular UN-backed Internet game that allows players to expand their word skills while helping to feed the world's hungry. FreeRice.com, in which 20 grains of rice are donated to the UN World Food Programme (WFP) every time a person answers a question correctly, has already generated over 36 billion grains of rice enough for more than 3.7 million meals. Two consignments of rice for Myanmar have been paid for by YUM! and Unilever, the latest companies to help fund the FreeRice initiative.
