World Hunger Sunday is coming…

By September 19, 2006

International (MNN)–About 30,000 people die every day from hunger and related diseases. About half of them are children, making the death toll one child every five seconds. In North America, the statistics show one in ten people are suffering from the effects of hunger.

The Christian Reformed World Relief Committee addresses this issue by launching an action campaign culminating on November 5th as World Hunger Sunday. This year’s theme is “Keep the Promise.”

CRWRC took on the injustice of poverty in 2005 with Micah Challenge, the global Christian campaign calling leaders to keep their promise to achieve the UN’s eight millennium development goals by 2015.

CRWRC recommits to Micah in ’06 with a focus on Goal #6: halt and begin to reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS. The interwoven projects provide opportunities for believers to respond to the crisis with the love of Christ.
