It’s big, it’s new and it needs your help! October 16th is World Food Day. ActionAid is inviting you to with us celebrate and help launch our new HungerFREE campaign.
ActionAid tower has been buzzing with ideas and hard work for the last few months. Honed down and perfected, they’ll be reaching you via email, in the news, through the post and in places you least expect. We’ve been busy, but your role is even more important. Unless people like you take action, we will never achieve our goal of a HungerFREE world.
It’s a big task. A billion people live with chronic hunger. This isn’t just about a couple of skipped meals. Hunger kills. 10,000 children under the age of five die every day of hunger. The problem is global, and so is the solution. The only way to beat this is together.
The fight has already started. From Afghanistan to Zambia, poor people are demanding the things they need to feed themselves and their families. Access to land, good quality seeds, help storing crops - the solutions are simple if governments would just prioritise hunger.
This where you come in. First up on our campaign to ‘do list’ in the UK is to get Gordon Brown to put tackling hunger at the top of his political agenda. Watch this space to find out how we can make it happen.
