McInnes backs hunger campaign

North East Liberal Democrat MSP Alison McInnes is calling on people in the North East to support an Oxfam-backed campaign to tackle global hunger.

The “Enough Food For Everyone If …” campaign is the biggest call for change in a generation. It is uniting more than 100 organisations, including Oxfam, all focused on one goal: to end global hunger.Commenting, Mrs McInnes said: “Hunger is a scandal which affects millions, with more than two million children dying every year because they do not have enough food. I support this campaign and have signed a parliamentary motion welcoming it. People can find out more and sign up at the Oxfam website – www.oxfam.org.uk”

The campaign calls on leaders to tackle four “Ifs”, including giving enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and helping the poorest families feed themselves.
