Conflict is the biggest driver of hunger. When conflict strikes, hunger is always close behind.

And the number of violent conflicts globally is on the rise. 50 million people are now at risk of dying of starvation this year due to conflict - that’s almost 10 times the population of Ireland.

When we picture conflict, we imagine explosions, violence and bloodshed. What we don’t imagine is the devastation caused by the deadliest weapon of all: hunger.

Hunger is the most deadly threat to children living in conflict zones – they are more likely to die of hunger and related diseases than from violence. And for far too many children, conflict is all they know. That’s why your support today is vital, because nothing kills like hunger.

All around the world, conflict pushes families and communities into poverty. Families are forced to flee their homes, people’s livelihoods – their only source of income and food – are attacked and destroyed, and famine is used as a threat. Displaced, they find themselves with no means of growing or buying food, and facing their biggest threat yet – hunger. Hunger is being used as a weapon of war, and people living in violent conflict are living in perpetual fear.

But there is a solution.
