Right now, 49 million people, including millions of vulnerable children and young people, are facing famine. This is an urgent crisis and can’t wait.
Here in Australia, we’ve seen our own food prices skyrocket due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic, climate disasters and most recently, the conflict in Ukraine. But in communities and countries where people were already facing life-threatening hunger, this conflict has pushed them to the breaking point.
Together, we can help save lives. We can help fight famine.
ChildFund Australia is joining calls for the Australian Government to urgently deliver $150 million to support the world’s hungriest countries, including communities in the Horn of Africa, Yemen, Afghanistan and Syria.
Write to your local MP here and call on them to push our new government to do our part in responding to this urgent crisis.
Right now, our new government is shaping the federal budget, including deciding how they will support communities who are facing life-threatening hunger around the world. For our new government to step up and stand with communities who are on the brink of famine, they need to hear from you.
Our new government must urgently step up and do our part to support communities on the brink of famine. $150 million is only a tiny fraction of our national budget but is enough to help save millions of children from life-threatening hunger.
Together, we can show that Australians want a foreign policy shaped by fairness, equality, and compassion.
The global scale of this crisis requires us all to do our part to keep children and young people from going hungry. Make your voice heard today.
