Why We Should All Care About #Hunger.

Why We Should All Care About #Hunger.


Today high level talks took place at the World Food Programme’s Rome headquarters. Why? The Sahel region in western Africa is in dire threat of experiencing famine just like we are currently seeing in the Horn of Africa. Aid and humanitarian agencies are coming together to ensure they are ready for the impending food shortages that are being caused by food inflation costs, drought, conflict, and displacement.

Our friends at the World Food Programme are not only working to prevent hunger on the high level, but they are also on the ground feeding those in need of food, and are educating the masses about how important it is to ensure everyone has enough food to eat, no matter where a person lives on earth.

The World Food Programme is looking for a passionate supporter to highlight in their March newsletter that is sent to nearly a million people worldwide.

Take a few minutes and upload a video online telling the World Food Programme why you’re fighting hunger, and then share your link. If you would like to write a post instead, you can post a message here.

Be sure to upload your video or post your message by February 20 to be considered.
