An incredible 17,000 people have signed our letter to the Prime Minister calling for action on child hunger and stunting. Thank you so much to everyone who added their names.
Our youth ambassador Harry Phinda handed them to Number 10 on Friday, ahead of a Hunger Summit being hosted by David Cameron this Sunday 12 August.
Stunting is what happens when a child doesn't receive the right food early in life. The damage is irreversible. That child will never learn, nor earn, as much as he or she could have if properly nourished their first 1,000 days. It shouldn’t be like this.
David Beckham delivered our letter, signed by over 50 prominent UNICEF supporters, to the Prime Minister last month. It asks him to act now to put an end to child hunger and stunting.
You can follow the conversation on Twitter today using the hashtag #globalhunger. We’ll keep you updated about the events of the summit as they happen.
