Save the Children: Race Against Hunger


Remember to watch BBC Children in Need’s televised Appeal Show TONIGHT at 7.30pm on BBC 1. Tune in for a night of fantastic entertainment and a great sense of community and making a difference together!

Go to yesterday’s post to find out about ways to support this cause.


Today’s post is about an initiative by Save the Children called Race for Hunger.

Every year, 2.3 million children die because they don’t get enough of the right food. 

David Cameron has announced that he will lead the way in the Race Against Hunger. We want him to use his G8 presidency in 2013 to set ambitious plans to tackle hunger and save millions of children's lives.

The world has shown in recent years that it can take dramatic action - millions of children have been saved from preventable diseases. But despite major progress, hunger is still the root cause of a third of all child deaths. 

Right now, rises in global food prices are deepening the crisis. Families in the poorest countries are finding it harder and harder to afford the nutritious food their children need.

Sign the petition and send a message now asking the Prime Minister to tackle hunger and save millions of lives- it will only take a minute!

Together we can give every child a life free from hunger.
