Celebrities back one of the biggest world hunger campaigns

An anti-hunger campaign will be launched in London tonight, warning that almost a billion young people could see themselves in poverty in 2025.

The IF campaign has released a report stating that much of the good work done over the past decade to help people out of poverty is at risk of being undone.
