Enough Food for Everyone IF Campaign

Tearfund have followed up their campaign around World Food Day (16th October), with supporting the IF Campaign.

This focuses on opportunity of the UK hosting the G8 summit in June of 2013, and therefore the opportunity the UK has to influence the world’s richest nations to bringing an end to world hunger.

Post Update: (20th March 2013) via @Tearfund:

We’ve Won!

Today Chancellor George Osborne kept his promise to increase the aid budget. Let’s give God thanks that we’ve got here at last.

Back in 1970 rich countries promised to give 0.7% of their national incomes as aid. But until today, the UK never has. So this is a great victory for the Enough Food for Everyone IF campaign, working hard this year to win the battle in hard times and against real opposition.

It’s also a great victory for all of us who’ve prayed and spoken out about this for many years. Thank you for your commitment and your faith.

We know we’ll need to monitor the aid to make sure it’s spent well. And we know aid’s only a first step towards the end of hunger – we want the government and G8 to keep the promise on climate finance and take action on tax, transparency, and land grabs.

We’ll see over the next week what the government does in the Finance Bill to help cut tax dodging in poor countries. There’s a lot more to do.

But today is a day to celebrate and tell your friends. Our voices and our prayers are powerful. We’ve helped hungry people to feed themselves, we’ve helped thirsty people get clean water to drink, we’ve helped people with HIV get care and treatment, we’ve given children an education, we’ve freed women from walking miles to fetch water.

Thank you for all you’ve done to get this promise kept.

Thank you.

The Campaigns Team.
