Will you help us fight famine?
Right now, 49 million people are on the brink of famine. Children are dying. Conflict, COVID-19, climate shocks and now the war in Ukraine, have created the perfect storm for an unprecedented global hunger crisis. To prevent the deaths of millions of people, the Australian Government must step up and do our part. $150 million is needed to avert catastrophe in the worst-affected hunger hotspots in the Horn of Africa, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Syria. We can make a difference, save lives, and help fight famine.
We are calling on the Australian Government to –
- Save lives now through an urgent Famine Prevention Package of $150 million to avert catastrophe in the worst-affected hunger hotspots in the Horn of Africa, Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen.
- Tackle the root causes of the global hunger crisis through investing long-term in a targeted Global Food Security Strategy.
- Strengthen resilience of the Asia Pacific region to climate change, disasters, and economic shocks by increasing Australia’s development assistance.
