The G8 world leaders are coming to the UK in June this year, as it’s the UK’s turn to chair the event.
To mark this, over 100 UK charities (many from faith groups) have got together for the ‘IF’ campaign.
Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry every night and two million children die from malnutrition every year. We’ve made progress in other areas, but hunger is still the great scandal of our age. All around the world, even in the UK, people are struggling to feed their families.
The campaign is based on four big ‘IF’ statements:
- Enough Food For Everyone IF we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves.
- Enough Food For Everyone IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries.
- Enough Food For Everyone IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and grow crops to feed people, not fuel cars.
- Enough Food For Everyone IF governments and big companies are honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.
Here’s a video about what the campaign is about:
