There is enough food in the world and we believe that it should be shared with all our brothers and sisters. Do you? - One Human Family, Food for All
Pope Francis Initiates Global Effort to Combat Hunger.
One Human Family, Food for All Join us in our wave of prayer to end hunger at midday 10th December to kick off our campaign One human family, food for all. The wave starts in Samoa and will cross every continent in the world.
One Human Family, Food for All offers a unique opportunity for our voices to join as one and for us to work together to end the scandal which is world hunger.
The wave of prayer sets down the spiritual roots of the campaign and will involve Caritas organisations and people of good will from all around the world.
Things you can do • Organise a prayer meeting for midday on 10th December. • Contemplate why hunger exists, how it affects people, how actions on one side of the world affect the lives of people on the other.
• Read a reflection on hunger from Caritas president, Cardinal Oscar Rodríguez Maradiaga to the bishop presidents of Caritas organisations around the world. • Download the Caritas prayer against hunger. • Think about changes you could make to your own life and what changes need to happen within countries and on an international level so they people no longer go hungry.
