Children protesting in Peru

Campaign with us

We work in 46 countries around the world to support people without access to essential food and healthcare. These numbers are rising because of the impacts of conflict, climate change, inequality and, now, Covid-19.

You can be part of a movement to end hunger for good.

In the UK, our campaigners urge the UK Government to support communities around the world to access nutritious, safe and affordable food and essential health services. We work to understand the reasons why hunger exists and then campaign to make sure the UK government does its bit to tackle the causes of hunger.

That is where supporters like you come in, by campaigning with us.

Sign the petition: support health workers

This year the UK Government’s commitment to invest UK Aid in nutrition and save the lives of children with malnutrition expires. After 2020, funding for programmes that train health workers or treat malnourished children runs out. We can’t let this happen. Time is running out.

We’re urging the UK government to continue their investment in nutrition services and health workers around the world.

Malnutrition will not wait for a pandemic. Because of Covid-19, hunger and malnutrition around the world are set to rise. It’s predicted that 10,000 more children are expected to die from malnutrition each month in 2020 than before the pandemic struck.

Dominic Raab is in charge of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). Let him know that you want his department to invest in nutrition and save lives. It must be a priority.
