The soaring resource prices and food crisis caused by the conflict in Ukraine have been reported, but now the world hunger problem is in a very serious phase.
The second goal of the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) is to “zero hunger” by 2030. Looking at the changes in the number of hungry people in the world, although there was a downward trend around 2014, hunger has spread again since then. In particular, Somalia in East Africa is experiencing the worst drought in the last 40 years. At World Vision, we are providing emergency humanitarian assistance to people facing hunger in collaboration with various partners such as UN agencies such as the United Nations WFP (World Food Program) and the Japanese government, with donations from the Japanese people. increase.
This time, through an interview with Kanda staff of World Vision Japan’s Emergency Humanitarian Relief Division, we would like to report on what is being done in the field of food aid, along with the conflicts and wishes of frontline staff. increase. We also introduce messages from staff working in Somalia, East Africa, where the impact of hunger is particularly pronounced.
In unstable situations such as climate change and conflict, it is children who are most affected. I hope that this will be a time for all of us to think about what we can do to help growing children facing hunger eat enough food and grow up healthy with hope. ■ Event overview
