Caritas Finland takes part in the One human family, food for all campaign beginning on December 10. The global campaign wants to get people thinking about the fact that we are all brothers and sisters and that too many of us go hungry. Through the campaign Caritas Internationalis aims to change attitudes in the world to put an end to hunger before 2025.
Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Tegucigalpa, president of Caritas Internationalis, says: "There is enough food to feed the planet. We believe that with your help and the help of governments and the U.N. we can end hunger by 2025."
Pope Francis supports the campaign. He has said:
"It is a well-known fact that current levels of production are sufficient, yet millions of people are still suffering and dying of starvation. This is truly scandalous."
Pope Francis is also involved in the Wave of Prayer that begins the campaign at noon on December 10. The global wave begins in Samoa in the Pacific and reaches Finland 12 hours later.
