The world is in the grip of a catastrophic hunger crisis and we have to act NOW:
at this very moment, 828 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from and 50 million people in over 45 countries are on the brink of starvation.
Slovenia has heard your urgent calls to tackle food insecurity and provide immediate aid to those in need.
I am proud to announce that we have pledged 1.23 million euros in support of civil society organizations working to fight hunger across sub-Saharan Africa.
I call on leaders around the world to join us and make sure no one is left behind!
