Desmond Tutu: 'Hunger is not an incurable disease'

Desmond Tutu, the former Archbishop of Cape Town and long-serving human rights campaigner, is backing a multi charity campaign to end world hunger.

Hunger is not an incurable disease or an unavoidable tragedy. We can make sure no child goes to bed hungry.

We can stop mothers from starving themselves to feed their families. We can save lives.

We can do all of this, if we are prepared to do something about it. If we challenge our leaders to take action. If they listen to us.

It's time the world's decision-makers came to the right decision on hunger.

It's time to end the unnecessary suffering caused by the failure of the current food system. We can make hunger a thing of the past if we act now.

– Desmond Tutu
