Christian Aid Week
12 to 18 May 2013
Join us to bite back at hunger this Christian Aid Week and help communities find ways to not only survive but to thrive, with enough food to eat not just today but tomorrow.
The world produces enough food for everyone yet one in eight people on this planet are living with the pain of hunger. IF we all act together, we can make world leaders change the future by tackling four big IFs:
IF we stop big companies dodging taxes in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger.
That money could help millions of people to escape from hunger. We can help stop this tax dodging if our government steps up to close the international tax loopholes.
IF we make the right investments to stop people dying from hunger, and help the poorest people feed themselves.
The poorest farmers are losing their land to giant corporations. These companies don’t care that the land is already being used by local people to grow food. Stopping them would help millions of people get enough to eat.
IF we force governments and big corporations to be honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.
Corporates and governments must be more transparent about their affairs so that citizens can hold to account powerful players in the food system.
