Can't Stomach Hunger

Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. But when a child gets regular, nutritious food, it changes everything.

The Nutrition for Growth summit in December 2021 was a critical opportunity to get commitments from world leaders to tackle malnutrition. But while some governments stepped up and pledged billions, the UK made no financial commitment. At a time when malnutrition is rising due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are deeply concerned to see this inaction from the UK.

Join us in calling on the Foreign Secretary to urgently commit to invest in nutrition.

Our campaign so far

Our supporters have been calling for the UK to continue its vital commitments to nutrition programmes that help prevent and treat child malnutrition.

We saw MPs and supporters tweet on World Food Day. We had parliamentary debates and media coverage. And 17,500 of you signed a petition, which we handed in alongside Action Against Hunger and Results UK.

Watch our hand-in video below.

Minister Wendy Morton responded to our petition, which you can read here.

Working with other charities in the International Coalition for Advocacy on Nutrition (ICAN) UK, we produced a report outlining what we wanted to see from the UK at the summit which we used to engage ministers, civil servants and MPs.
