- 1 in 8 people are living with the pain of hunger.
What is IF?
Hunger is the greatest scandal of our age. Despite the world producing enough food for everyone, year after year more people die from starvation than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. The equation seems simple, but the numbers aren’t adding up with one in eight of the global population suffering at the hands of chronic hunger.
The Enough Food for Everyone campaign is a combined effort from over 100 UK-based charities, to lobby global leaders into taking the lead on ending world hunger. Between now and the G8 summit in June, we’re teaming up to put pressure on David Cameron to use his presidency to implement some crucial changes to the way we approach this world-wide crisis.
Working as one, we can rally millions of people to petition their MPs, reminding them that the scourge of starvation is still very much on the public’s agenda. Let’s make 2013 the beginning of the end for this fatally flawed food system.
The IF campaign ‘table’ which we hope to feed the world from is supported by four crucial legs. Four big Ifs surrounding four big issues that lie at the root of the hunger crises.
The Four IFs
There will be enough food for everyone if our global leaders can achieve these goals. Also click on the key words to see how Concern Universal are taking on each challenge and to find out our core messages for each area.
IF we give enough aid to stop children starving and help the poorest, most vulnerable families feed themselves.
IF we stop small farmers getting pushed off their land by large private investors.
IF we stop big companies dodging tax in developing countries.
IF governments and large companies commit to a much greater level of transparency regarding their acquisitions and transactions.
What do we need?
This whole project is dependent on members of the public getting involved and showing that they won’t stand idly by as almost one billion people world-wide go to bed hungry each night. So please take a minute to get involved. In this case inaction is the most dangerous kind of action.
