130 Million People May Face Chronic Hunger

Hi Paov,

The ripple effect of COVID-19 has brought untold pain and hardship across the globe. Infection numbers continue to rise, more companies are struggling to survive, terrifying swarms of locusts are destroying food sources and millions more people are going to bed hungry every night. We are living through very challenging times.


On Monday, an annual report which tracks progress towards ending hunger was released. With it came devastating news: over 130 million more people may face chronic hunger by the end of this year.


Global hunger was on the rise even before the pandemic, but the new findings are staggering. The world produces enough food to feed everyone, yet just last year 2 billion people lacked regular access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food.


The warning signs couldn’t be clearer –– the world is off track from eliminating hunger by 2030 and we have a collective responsibility to turn this around.


Add your name to this petition now calling world leaders to step up and urgently tackle hunger by investing in agriculture — so farmers can grow more food, end hunger, and give their communities a better chance to emerge from this pandemic unscathed.

Thanks for all you do,

Mwandwe and the Global Citizen team
