2022: a year of unprecedented hunger
As many as 828 million people get hungry every night, the number of those facing acute food insecurity has soared – from 135 million to 345 million – since 2019. A total of 50 million people in 45 countries are teetering on the edge of famine.
While needs are sky-high, resources have hit rock bottom. The World Food Programme (WFP) requires US$22.2 billion to reach 152 million people in 2022. However, with the global economy reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, the gap between needs and funding is bigger than ever before.
We are at a critical crossroads. To avert the hunger catastrophe the world is facing, everyone must step up alongside donors, whose generous donations constitute the bulk of WFP’s funding. Private sector companies can support through technical assistance and knowledge transfers, as well as financial contributions. High net-worth individuals and ordinary citizens alike can all play a part, and youth, influencers and celebrities can raise their voices against the injustice of global hunger.
Unless the necessary resources are made available, lost lives and the reversal of hard-earned development gains will be the price to pay.
