Nourish the World’s Most Vulnerable People

The COVID-19 pandemic is increasing the risk of a severe crisis in areas where many already do not have enough nutritious food. As missionary disciples, we are called to respond to the urgent needs of those who face hunger and malnutrition during this global crisis. Together, we can lead the way to prevent and end world hunger by uniting as a community to pray, learn and act in support of our human family in need.
