Our world has enough food for everyone, yet malnutrition remains the world’s biggest killer of children.
Every hour of every single day 300 children die because of hunger caused by a lack of basic nutritious food. For those that survive, malnutrition can be a life sentence as it stops children’s brains and bodies developing properly and limits their young lives.
David Cameron has a chance to break the chains of hunger for millions of children by taking action at the G8 summit in May. We need your help to make it happen. We can’t let this moment pass us by.
The need for action couldn’t be more urgent. Right now, there’s a chain of hunger stretching across Africa, from Senegal in the west to Somalia in the east. It’s a crisis brought on by a deadly combination of drought, crop failure, conflict and high food prices, that is endangering the lives of millions of children.
We and others are responding with emergency aid but the fact that so many children were already malnourished before the crisis hit means they are even more likely to die.
If millions of children are to have real hope in the future, the world has to tackle the hunger crisis.
That’s why your support for this campaign is so important. Together, we can be a powerful voice urging world leaders to act on hunger and break the chains holding so many children back.
Together, we can give every child a life free of hunger.
