The IF campaign

As I suspect you will have seen a significant campaign against hunger has been launched today. The IF campaign has the support of over 100 organisations, including the C of E, Tearfund and Christian Aid. There is a launch event this evening which I’d hoped to go to, but sadly this is deadline week so…

As I suspect you will have seen a significant campaign against hunger has been launched today. The IF campaign has the support of over 100 organisations, including the C of E, Tearfund and Christian Aid. There is a launch event this evening which I’d hoped to go to, but sadly this is deadline week so I must go back to the drawing table.

I’ve posted a video above (which I haven’t actually seen yet owing to not being in a place with sound) and the aims of the campaign below. You can find out more via the IF site ( or a more simple version if, like me, your computer doesn’t cope with flashy sites), Tearfund or Christian Aid, both of whom have resources for churches, etc.

Anyway, please do sign up. Seems to me to be quite an important thing to get behind.

Aid
Enough Food For Everyone IF we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves.

Tax
Enough Food For Everyone IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries.

Land
Enough Food For Everyone IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and grow crops to feed people, not fuel cars.

Transparency
Enough Food For Everyone IF governments and big companies are honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.
