Did you know that there are still 690 million people - one in ten people on earth - living in hunger?
While parts of the world consume too much, too many people do not have enough to survive, let alone live the life we in Australia often take for granted.
They don’t have enough food, or the right kinds of food. However hunger is not just about food – it’s also about a lack of opportunity, resources and education.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, people in remote, rural villages around the world need our partnership to lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.
You can help.
The Hunger Project is already working on a global scale to end world hunger. They’ve reached 16.5 million people across 13,600 communities worldwide, and trained 500,000 local leaders in remote, rural villages in India, Bangladesh, Africa and Latin America.
But there’s so much more that can be done to create a world where everyone has enough to eat, and the right kinds of food to eat.
