Our campaigns

Our campaigns

We are dedicated to shining a light on issues that affect the world's poorest people. Using our experience on the ground, we push for changes that will improve the lives of the people we work with. By tackling the root causes of poverty, we aim to achieve lasting change.

Concern supporters are an essential part of this. By using your voice, you help get our messages through to decision makers and push development issues up the political agenda.

Campaigning works. Over the last 20 years, significant progress has been made in reducing hunger levels around the world.

Can't Stomach Hunger

Today we live in a world where over 150 million children are malnourished. This stops their bodies and brains from developing, puts them more at risk of disease and threatens their survival. Nearly half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. But when a child gets regular, nutritious food, it changes everything. 

In 2020, world leaders will meet at a landmark nutrition summit in Tokyo. Decisions made at the summit could transform millions of lives. With the right investment and commitment at a global scale, we can ensure every family can feed their children. 

This is our big chance to get international action on hunger, and the UK can play a critical role. Thousands of people already have signed our petition telling the UK government to take action on hunger now.
