We work in 51 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 with the public and parliamentarians to make sure the UK government does its bit to tackle the causes of hunger.
That’s where supporters like you come in, by campaigning with us.
The UK has led global efforts to reduce hunger and malnutrition around the world. But aid cuts could mean nearly 3 million of the mothers and their children on the frontline of hunger go without life-saving nutrition. UK Aid plays a vital role in supporting them.
After the failure of the UK Government to make a commitment to tackling malnutrition at the Nutrition for Growth Summit in December 2021, we put pressure on the Foreign Secretary to change the course of the malnutrition crisis.
By writing to Liz Truss, our campaigners helped achieve a pledge of £1.5 billion of UK Aid for nutrition that will save and improve lives.
We campaigned against aid cuts that risked life-saving treatment for children living in some of the world’s poorest places – often growing up in conflict. Our supporters wrote to their MPs in force, asking them to ensure brighter futures for hungry children around the world.
We organise parliamentary events, such as the launch of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Nutrition for Growth. We brought together speakers including Dr Asha Rose Migiro, the Tanzanian High Commissioner to the UK, and Andrew Murrison MP, former DfID minister, to discuss tackling malnutrition. Our chef ambassadors, Tom Hunt and Asma Khan catered the event and reminded guests the importance of healthy, nutritious food.
Yemen Can’t Wait
We took part in a cross-sector campaign to tackle the hunger crisis in Yemen. We joined a number of advocacy and humanitarian organisations in calling for the UK, as a permanent member of the security council, to stand up for the Yemeni people.
The campaign included social media takeovers, meetings with key decision-makers and events to draw the government’s attention to the crisis.
