Christian Aid and SCIAF will spend an hour at the Annual Gathering to introduce you to the IF Scotland campaign and explain why and how to get involved.
A guide to IF – Why now?
Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry every night and two million children die from malnutrition every year. We’ve made progress in other areas, but hunger is still the great scandal of our age. All around the world, even in the UK, people are struggling to feed their families.
In 2013, the government has promised to provide 0.7% of national income for aid and to host a Hunger Summit.
We must make sure they keep these promises.
In June, the world’s most powerful leaders will meet in the UK at the G8.This is our best opportunity to tackle hunger. We must make IF happen.
