Charity Helps Launch National Campaign
A charity based in Milton Keynes is helping to launch a national campaign to tackle hunger.
World Vision is one of a hundred charities to launch the 'Enough Food For Everyone IF' campaign. It is the largest coalition of its kind in the UK since Make Poverty History in 2005.
The group, made up of Britain's leading charities and faith groups, is warning in a world where there is enough food for everyone, the scandal of children growing up hungry also imposes an economic burden on the developing world, costing £78 billion over the next fifteen years.
The campaign is backed by Bill Gates and Archbishop Desmond Tutu and warns hunger and malnutrition in children will trap almost a billion young people in poverty by 2025.
The campaign is calling on David Cameron to use the UK's G8 presidency in 2013 to take action on the root causes of the hunger crisis in the poorest countries.
Justin Byworth, World Vision CEO said: "We know that the world produces enough food for everyone, but not everyone has enough food. But it doesn't have to be like this.
"World Vision is joining the IF campaign to help take action towards ending global hunger, because when we all come together we can make a real difference.
"I hope people will share their voices and show our leaders we won't accept the injustice of children going hungry any longer."
