Name A Day to End World Hunger


I have my Save the Children Ambassador hat on as today sees the launch of the next phase in the No Child Born to Die campaign. This year we are urging David Cameron to lead  a worldwide push to end hunger.

Malnutrition is a hidden crisis. There is enough food in the world to feed everyone and yet 300 children die of malnutrition every single hour of every single day. That is scandalous.

If they survive, malnutrition can lead to stunting which means children do not grow properly and their mental capacity is often irreparably damaged. In poor countries 1 in 3 children suffer permanent damage to their bodies and minds because they are malnourished in their first few years.

Here’s how you can help:

  • #nameaday when you will do one thing to help save children’s lives and help us to urge David Cameron to do the same
  • Ruth Clemens (aka The Pink Whisk) is in Rwanda now, meeting mothers, children, health workers and politicians and finding out how we can help. Follow her journey on her blog and on Twitter and please offer her all the support you can as so many of you supported me so magnificently last year. She is calling for family recipes to be collated into an e-book to be sold to raise funds and awareness about the campaign – I know most of us can offer one of those!
  • Tweet using the hashtag #nameaday and help whip up a digital storm to grab the politicians attention
  • #nameaday on your blog if you have one and urge your readers to join the campaign

Thank you.
