8 thoughts on “Hungry English children steal food

  1. I just read a quote by Nelson Mandela: “We owe our children, the most vulnerable citizens in our society, a life free of violence and fear.” With all the food wastage that occurs, it is incomprehensible that we cannot come up with a solution to hunger.

  3. From the USA:

    CARE was founded in 1945 to feed starving war survivors in Europe by distributing “CARE packages” funded by individual donors. It now works in 84 countries, supporting 1015 poverty-fighting projects, and reaching over 122 million people.

    CARE knows first-hand the harm cuts in foreign aid will cause for millions of desperately poor families worldwide.

    CARE Defending dignity. Fighting poverty.

    Dear Activist,

    It’s 1% of the federal budget – and a lifeline for millions of poor families.

    The fiscal cliff could slash the International Affairs Budget by 9% unless we act now.

    Don’t let Congress make devastating cuts. Tell your members of Congress to fund poverty-fighting programs!

    With the “fiscal cliff” looming, automatic spending cuts could slash U.S. humanitarian assistance – with dire consequences for hungry families, pregnant women, and sick children all over the world.

    That assistance is a miniscule part (1%) of the federal budget, and it’s essential for millions living with hunger and desperate poverty.

    Reckless, shortsighted cuts to the International Affairs Budget won’t solve our debt crisis. By targeting lifesaving programs, the U.S. would compromise American national security interests, paralyze U.S. response if a devastating natural disaster strikes, and leave millions without any way to pull themselves out of poverty.

    We have to act now. Click here to ask your members of Congress to protect poverty-fighting humanitarian programs before the fiscal cliff takes effect January 2, 2013.

    The International Affairs Budget is caught up in negotiations to avoid the fiscal cliff before the end of the year. CARE is joining efforts to avoid disproportionate cuts. But we need the support of constituents like you – people willing to speak out on behalf of those living on less than $1 a day.

    If we do nothing, the negotiations surrounding the fiscal cliff may slash the International Affairs Budget by 9%. With a budget that’s already very lean, cuts of that size will be devastating to the most vulnerable.

    Foreign aid saves real, precious lives – mothers, sisters, grandfathers, and fathers. To protect them, we all need to speak out today.

    Time is running out! Take this easy action to reach out to your members of Congress and pressure them to save lifesaving poverty-fighting programs.

    Sincerely,

    Helene D. Gayle, MD, MPH
    President and CEO, CARE
