Hunger was on the rise before the COVID-19 pandemic, and now 88-million more people are being pushed into poverty because of this crisis, reports the World Bank. Watch the Global Goals’ YouTube video, as it explains what necessary actions are needed to end world hunger. 

“Hunger is something completely unacceptable in modern societies, because, let’s be clear, it’s not because of the lack of food that people are hungry in the world; there is enough food in the world to feed the world’s population. The problem is a problem of inequality,” says António Guterres, UN secretary-general, in the YouTube video below.

How can we do our part to ensure safe and nutritious food is accessible to everyone? The Global Goals’ video presents a checklist of what’s needed to end world hunger:

  • change food systems, so people are put first
  • produce food more sustainably and waste less
  • provide nutritious meal for all
  • make healthy food affordable for all
  • continue the campaign against hunger

In 2020/2021, Children Believe provided 1,000,000+ children, youth, women and other vulnerable families and community members access to quality education and health, including food rations through our COVID-19 response program.
