“He is not a believer who fills his stomach while his neighbour goes hungry.”
Tragically, 828 million people go hungry each and every day in some of the world’s poorest communities.
In 2022, the WFP (World Food Programme) declared 2022 a year of unprecedented hunger as a total of 50 million across 45 countries are on the brink of famine. The issue is is at its worse in the region of East Africa, with Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia being among the hardest hit.
