Conflicts are one of the leading causes of hunger affecting millions of people around the world. Six out of 10 undernourished people live in regions impacted by conflict.
Hunger itself is often used as a weapon of war against civilians. Bombing markets, blocking access to roads, poisoning wells, destroying farming lands… these are some of the war tactics used to starve and enslave entire populations.
In light of this, in countries such as Yemen, Syria, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Central African Republic or South Sudan, hunger is deliberately used as a weapon of war proving to be as effective as bombs and bullets.
In order to condemn these crimes Action Against Hunger launches #StopHungerCrime
Hunger has been turned into a weapon of war, so we have turned a weapon of war into cutlery against hunger.
We fight against hunger so that we can stand up for peace. You too can help us condemn these crimes. Join our cause and post a picture of your own knife and fork making a cross with the hashtag #StopHungerCrime.
