Hunger and malnutrition traps almost one billion people on our Earth in poverty.
South West campaigners have come together to tackle this as part of the new ‘IF’ campaign launched by over 150 of Britain’s leading development charities and faith groups, the largest coalition of its kind in the UK since Make Poverty History in 2005.
IF enough people join us in showing support for ending hunger, world leaders will be forced to act. Join us at www.enoughfoodif.org

Great strides have been made in reducing poverty, but hunger is threatening to reverse these achievements. Hardworking poor farmers, especially women and their children, and vulnerable and ordinary people everywhere face the highest food prices in a generation. In the UK, the numbers of people using food banks has risen sharply. Climate change is making things even worse.
We are currently asking our South West MPs to ensure internationally agreed aid levels are provided in the UK Budget and that poor countries are helped to stop corporate tax-dodgers depriving them of much needed funds for development.
