This year we will be part of a huge coalition of UK-based organisations to mobilise thousands of people around Wales to take action on overcoming hunger.
The world produces enough food for everyone, yet not everyone has enough food to live. It’s unfair, it’s unjust, and the truth is – it’s totally preventable. Through our actions, we can persuade governments to take action. If they do, 2013 could be the beginning of the end of hunger.
In June the UK will play host to the G8: the 8 most powerful countries in the world are coming to the UK, and already tabled for discussion is Food Security and Nutrition. This provides us with the perfect opportunity to tell them that we need to end global hunger! If they wanted to end hunger, they could do it.
The campaign launches this month with a big fanfare and media splash and we’d love you to represent CAFOD at this launch event. We want as many or our supporters to attend this event to show how much we care about overcoming hunger. The more people, the greater the impact.
On Wednesday 23 January at 11am activists will gather outside Cardiff Castle. Come to celebrate the launch of the joint campaign. There’ll also be music and activities for you to get involved. Please contact Bernie Mills at the CAFOD South Wales office to let her know you can make it. We will then give you further details on a meeting point for CAFOD supporters at the event.
Oh, and don’t worry about the snow!
