Right now, 49 million people are facing famine - but we can help.

Here in Australia, we’ve seen food prices skyrocket due to the ongoing impact of the pandemic, climate disasters, and most recently, the conflict in Ukraine. In communities and countries where people were already facing life-threatening hunger, the global food crisis has pushed them to the breaking point.

Act for Peace, together with Micah Australia and humanitarian agencies from around Australia, are calling on the Australian Government to step up and do our part.

Our new government must urgently deliver $150 million to support the world’s hungriest countries, including communities in the Horn of Africa, Yemen, Myanmar, Afghanistan and Syria. 

Write to your local MP here and call on them to push our new government to do our part in responding to this urgent crisis.

This is a crisis of 2022 proportions, but we can save millions of lives if we choose to act now.

From Afghanistan to Kenya, Act for Peace is working with local partners in many of the countries bearing the brunt of this global food crisis. Already uprooted by conflict and disaster, these communities are now facing life-threatening hunger too. 

We are in regular contact with our partners on the ground, and are preparing to scale up programs to help them meet their needs in their local communities. But the magnitude of the crisis requires all governments to do their part.

Together, we can show that Australians want a foreign policy shaped by fairness, equality and compassion.
