No Child Born to Die

Take Action: End Child Hunger

Food is a right. Nutritious food is a necessity for children.

If world governments can save the global financial industry with investments of $600 billion, why can't we find $10 billion to save the lives of two million children?

Call on PM Stephen Harper to lead the world in ending child hunger.

To: Stephen Harper, Prime Minister

Dear Prime Minister,

6.9 million children die every year from preventable causes. I was shocked to learn that the underlying cause of 1/3 of these deaths is malnutrition, which simple steps can help to prevent.

Just $10 billion dollars invested in nutrition interventions could save two million lives. While I am pleased that Canada has shown leadership on food security and nutrition in the past, I would like to ask you, as Prime Minister, to ensure that Canada makes new commitments to food security and nutrition and uses our leadership to secure more funding from other global partners. Specifically:

1. On the global scale, will you use your voice to press for the adoption of an ambitious global stunting target by international bodies and national governments?

2. Here in Canada, will you pledge to increase the level of ODA in the 2013 budget? Canada remains a long way off the target of 0.7% GDI.

Prime Minister, please take this opportunity to be a champion for children on the issue of nutrition. I look forward to your response.

Sincerely,
