World Food Day, 16 October 2010
The theme of this year’s observance is United against hunger, chosen to recognize the efforts made in the fight against world hunger at national, regional and international levels.
Uniting against hunger becomes real when state and civil society organizations and the private sector work in partnership at all levels to defeat hunger, extreme poverty and malnutrition.
In 2009, the critical threshold of one billion hungry people in the world was reached in part due to soaring food prices and the financial crisis, a “tragic achievement in these modern days," according to FAO Director-General Jacques Diouf. On the eve of the hunger summit, Dr. Diouf launched an online petition to reflect the moral outrage of the situation. The “1 billion hungry project” reaches out to people through online social media to invite them to sign the anti-hunger petition at www.1billionhungry.org.
On this World Food Day 2010, when there have never been so many hungry people in the world, let us reflect on the future. With willpower, courage and persistence – and many players working together and helping each other – more food can be produced, more sustainably, and get into the mouths of those who need it most.
FOUNTAIN OF HOPE's CONTRIBUTION ENSURING FOOD ACCESS TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST.
Fountain of hope is involved in supporting the needy persons comprising of persons living with Aids, Widows, and orphans with food and basic needs. These are people who live in extreme poverty, what we do now is way too little compared to the many mouths that needed to be fed.
Fountain of Hope will be commemorating what we do all the time by giving very crucial commodity in human life: FOOD to the needy brother and sister. We ask you, friends, out there to support us with either cash, foodstuff donation, clothing and prayer to enable us to feed more people who need your support.
We plan to do this all the way to the entire Christmas season around the corner, and that's why we are seeking your support.
