FEDERAL WAY , WASHINGTON , UNITED STATES, October 14, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As activists across 150 countries gather to celebrate the fight against food insecurity on October 16 for World Food Day, Christian humanitarian organization World Vision is supporting the pledge to end extreme hunger in the developing world.
As the United Nations World Food Program’s largest partner, World Vision works with communities to address immediate food needs and to grow sustainable food for the future. Just last week, WFP was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, showcasing the critical nature of this humanitarian aid.
In 2019, World Vision donors helped 12 million people through food projects. But as COVID-19 threatens to double the number of people facing acute hunger this year, World Vision is giving holiday shoppers the chance to battle famine and scarcity with a simple online purchase through the 2020 holiday Gift Catalog.
From buying a family drought-resistant seeds or a fishing kit, donating to the East Africa Hunger Crisis, or supporting neighbors who have fallen out of work with a Coronavirus Emergency Response Kit here in the U.S., consumers can become activists with a single click. These gifts, purchased in the name of a loved one this holiday season, take an important step to ending extreme generational poverty.
To learn more about World Vision’s work to empower farmers and provide aid to people impacted by famine or disaster, or to learn more about the 2020 World Vision Holiday Gift Catalog, please visit www.worldvision.org or follow on Twitter @WorldVisionUSA.
