-For many people, burps are gross and a sign of disrespect, but not for kids. And not for World Vision Canada, where a burp is the sound of a successful food delivery and one less child going hungry. In partnership with the UN World Food Programme, World Vision Canada has been making a palpable difference in its efforts to eradicate childhood hunger, feeding 2.8 million people every year. Due to its efforts, a growing number of kids now know the joy of letting loose a satisfied post-meal burp.
