Dream, pray, act for a HungerFree world!
This weekend, May 18-19, is the G8 and leaders of world’s eight largest economies are gathering at Camp David to discuss the globe’s most pressing issues. We are inviting you to speak up, advocate, and involve others to urge the G8 leaders to address the global hunger crisis during this weekend’s talks. Join us in asking them to prioritize nutrition and health interventions – especially for women and children in their fist 1,000 days of life – and to follow through on previous commitments to tackle these issues.
This weekend, and throughout the next week, we encourage you to dream, pray and act for a hunger-free world. Check out this guide – 8 Days of Prayer and Action – to help you do just that, and visit www.hungerfree.org.
