Chronic food shortages

For 815 million people, hunger is a daily reality: they eat less than a meal per day. Often it is the same every day, leaving them with a chronic shortage of food to camps. The campaign of Broederlijk delen focuses this year on the local farming communities in Uganda, a country in which, despite the green landscapes and the fertile grounds, one in four inhabitants are malnourished.

Malnutrition and hunger are not just a Ugandan problem. With this campaign asks Broederlijk delen to not only the Ugandan farmers to support, but also to be critical towards our current food system. This might include a petition to sign via the website www.watishonger.be.
