More than 11 million people from Syria have been forced to flee their homes, approximately half of them children. Since 2012, Caritas Switzerland has provided emergency relief and long-term support totalling 18 million Swiss francs in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and northern Iraq.
One billion people suffer from hunger worldwide. Three-quarters of them are children. Every day, thousands of children die from the consequences of hunger and malnutrition. The causes of this tragedy, which means unspeakable suffering for every single human being, are poverty, mismanagement, climate change, natural disasters or war.
With your sponsorship of 'A world without hunger', you support Caritas projects against hunger. In a catastrophe, we provide the victims with food. In long-term projects, we train small farmers so they can get better yields from their land. With just one Swiss franc per day, you make a practical and important contribution, enabling Caritas to help families, villages and whole communities, to secure their food supplies and to build a sustainable livelihood by their own efforts.
