IF Cymru

Watch our short animation to explain how Wales can play its part to end global hunger.  This video is also available in Welsh.

The world produces enough food for everyone, but not everyone has enough food. A child dies of hunger every 15 seconds. In 2013 organisations in Wales have come together to look at how Wales can play its part to help stop this global scandal.

The Welsh Government and National Assembly legislate for most areas of Welsh life.  They can help end global hunger by tackling four big IFs:

St Mary’s High School lobbies the World Bank

Pupils at St Mary’s RC High School in Lugwardine, Hereford are making their voices heard to the UK’s representative at the World Bank, Melanie Robinson.  They are raising their concerns about the lack of access to renewable energy for some of the world’s poorest people.

CAFOD South Wales was invited into the school to talk to members of de Paul at their house assembly, specifically about this issue.   CAFOD’s Power to Be campaign is calling for more investment in local, renewable energy in developing countries.

Local, renewable energy can transform the lives of children. It can help families to lift themselves out of poverty, without harming the environment.  And the fastest, cheapest and most efficient solution is usually to provide “mini-grids” that are powered by renewable energy.
