Bread for the World Offering of Letters
CtK will be participating once again in the annual Bread for the World Offering of Letters which will take place on Sunday, October 20th. This year’s focus is on global nutrition. Here is a synopsis of the current situation:
“Today, nearly 821 million people in the world—11 percent of the world’s population—remain hungry. Countries in Central America, South Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa are disproportionately affected. Overall, 1 in 4 of the world’s children are affected by stunted growth, resulting in irreversible life consequences. And almost half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition.”
We will be writing letters (or sending e-mails) to our three Members of Congress supporting House Resolution 189 and increasing global nutrition funding to $250 million in the fiscal year 2020 appropriations bill.
So stay tuned for more details as October approaches. In the meantime, have your pen or your device ready, and lift your voice in support of those across the world suffering from hunger and poverty.
