Hungry for Change
Last year, more than 7 million children died before they could see their fifth birthday. Most of them died from preventable and treatable causes such as malnutrition, diarrhea and pneumonia. This is unacceptable.
But simple solutions can make a huge difference. We know what works - now we need your help to make it a reality. Please add your voice!
Join us in calling on the Canadian government to end preventable child deaths by:
- Leading the effort to establish global and national targets for the reduction of stunting in countries with high incidences of malnutrition.
- Making agriculture work for nutrition by supporting small/family farmers, many of them women, and programs to encourage indigenous, nutritious plants and animals.
- Supporting policies and programs that promote exclusive breast feeding, minimally for the first six months of a child’s life.
