815 million people in the world live in chronic hunger – even though we actually produce enough food on earth to feed the entire world’s population. This concerns us all.
- 815 people in the world do not have enough to eat.
- 60 per cent of the world’s hungry are women.
- 98 per cent of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries.
- Hunger kills more than aids, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
The non-profit organization The Hunger Project wants to change this. Since 1977, they have been working to change how the world thinks about hunger and to reduce hunger in the world by giving more people access to good education, clean water, local democracy and gender equality.
World Hunger Day is one of the initiatives by The Hunger Project. This year, World Hunger Day will highlight the importance of fostering self-reliance, upholding principles of human dignity and recognizing that every human is inherently creative, resourceful, responsible and productive.
Monday May 28, is World Hunger Day – help this date matter. Share the message in your social channels, make a contribution, meet the changemakers and read more about how to contribute! #WorldHungerDay
This is one of the matters that engage us at KappAhl. On Monday, in our Swedish stores, we give all our customers the opportunity to support World Hunger Day by rounding up their purchasing amount. All they give will be passed on to The Hunger Project.
