World Hunger Day 2014
Every year, on 28 May, we mark World Hunger Day to remind people of the damage hunger causes. We also want to highlight the simple solutions that Concern Worldwide uses to tackle the problem in the world's poorest countries.
Below are some of the ways your support is helping
Hunger to harvest
Deli, a three year old from Zambia, used to live on a diet of maize and okra. There were times when her family survived on one meal a day. Her mother, Monica, is now a participant in one of our programmes that focuses on the importance of good nutrition. Concern enabled her to take control of her family’s food needs by providing her with seeds, tools and training. The result is a harvest comprising of many different crops: sweet potato, cowpeas, beans, aubergines, carrots and ground nuts.
We establish demonstration plots so that famers can apply new farming techniques to better provide for their families all year round. We provide training in areas such as seed spacing, weeding and land cultivation.
A vital part of our work involves community health volunteers who work in local villages to educate mothers. We work with and train volunteers like Agnita (above centre) so that she can advise pregnant women about the need for better nutrition during pregnancy and the importance of breastfeeding.
