Support to the ONE Billion Hungry Project: Sign the Petition to End Hunger

News detail:

FAO estimates that 1.02 billion people are undernourished worldwide in 2009. These are hungry people than at any time since 1970, the earliest year for which compatible statistics are available. Hunger has increased not as a result of poor harvest, but because of high domestic food prices, lower income and increasing unemployment due to the global economic crisis. Many people cannot afford to buy the food they need. http://www.fao.org/hunger/hunger-home/en/
