We can help end world hunger – there is no time to waste | Mo Farah

On World Food Day it’s vital world leaders act now to save lives – nowhere in the world should it be acceptable for a child to be malnourished

It’s so difficult when people you know and care about are struggling to feed themselves and their families. I’m lucky to have a privileged life here in the UK, so I have been able to support my family back home in Somalia, especially in times of crisis. But despite my best efforts, I think I can always do more to make a difference. We can all do more.

I recently spoke to Save the Children staff in Somalia to find out more about how they’re supporting mothers and their children facing malnutrition. I heard from one mum whose family are only eating one small meal a day; her two sons had been taken to a Save the Children clinic with severe diarrhoea and vomiting caused by malnutrition. Their situation broke my heart.

As well as providing water, nutritious food and medicine to families like hers, living in the poorest and most remote areas of Somalia, the charity is working with local communities to help them develop more sustainable livelihoods so they can maintain a more nutritious diet in the future. headtopics.com

But Somalia is not the only country facing these challenges. In all regions of the world, there are millions of families having to make difficult choices to ensure they have enough to eat, millions more are skipping meals every day or eating food that lacks crucial nutrients. No child should ever go hungry, and combating a global hunger crisis on this scale requires global solutions.

On World Food Day it’s vital world leaders act now to save lives. Nowhere in the world should it be acceptable for a child to be malnourished. The upcoming Nutrition for Growth summit, a legacy of the 2012 Olympics, is an opportunity for the UK government to be a champion for children affected by the global hunger crisis. By making a new commitment to tackle malnutrition, it can help save lives and give millions of children the best possible start in life.

Children have no choice where or when they are born and the situation that they are brought up in. There’s no vaccine for hunger, but there is a solution if we act now. We have the power to change children’s lives for the better and there’s no time to waste.
