Ratings: (0)|Views: 15|Likes:
Action Against Hunger’s global magazine, Hunger Matters, delivers perspectives from the front lines of humanitarian action and the race to end deadly malnutrition. Thematically organized around “access to good nutrition,” this edition of Hunger Matters explores new approaches to helping the most vulnerable access the resources they need to ensure healthy lives for their families and communities. As Archbishop Desmond Tutu reminds us in this edition’s foreward, “Never before has the world had such abundant resources of money, knowledge and food. And yet hunger continues to ravage the lives of millions of people.”

Never beore has the world had such abundant resources omoney, knowledge and ood. And yet hunger continues toravage the lives o millions o people. The great injustice is thatthe youngest children, the most vulnerable and innocent o allhuman beings, continue to go hungry through no ault o theirown, simply because they do not have access to vital nutrients,where and when they are needed.Their parents have only the best intentions or them and do thebest they can. However they are orced to watch as theirchildren grow weak rom hunger and become malnourished– surely there is no greater pain or a parent than that. We all know a little about eeling hungry. We all eel pangs ohunger at some point or another, sometimes on a daily basis,sometimes less oten. But too many children in this world livewith hunger constantly, and endure it until their bodies becomeso malnourished that their lives are put at risk. In act, acutemalnutrition can become so normal that entire communitiessimply learn to accept it, believing it to be inevitable.The acceptance o child acute malnutrition as a act o lie isone o the most shocking realities o the condition; especially when it is truly possible to make access to adequate nutritionthe rule and not the exception. Action Against Hunger is a remarkable organisation with asta o energetic, enthusiastic and deeply committed peoplewho are determined to make a dierence to those who do nothave access to ood, good nutrition, health services, cleanwater and good sanitation.Making children the ocus o their work and mission, Action Against Hunger tackles undernutrition by providing directsupport to children and their amilies, including those who areaced with a lie o grinding poverty or who are the victims oconicts or natural disasters. They also help governments whocannot provide this essential support themselves.By putting themselves in the shoes o the people they arehelping whose lives are endangered by undernutrition, Action Against Hunger demonstrates that compassion is central tohumanitarian action. They are taking determined and decisiveaction to end one o the major injustices o all times: beingdenied access to good nutrition.I would like to commend Action Against Hunger on this fnepublication and on the rest o the essential work that they doaround the world. I also welcome this opportunity to express my support and urge you to do the same.
