Join Oxfam’s IF campaign to end starvation

By 28 January 2013 No Comments

Here at Oxford HR we are honoured to work closely with Oxfam to help them find the perfect candidates for a number of important roles around the world.

One of Oxfam’s latest projects, the IF campaign, is a collaboration of UK-based organisations working together to make the dream that everyone in the world has enough to eat into a reality. They aim to reach 20 million people across the UK with their message and inspire 5 million of them to get involved between now and June, when the G8 will meet in the UK chaired by David Cameron.

“The world has enough food for everyone, yet not everyone has enough food to live. It”s unfair, it”s unjust and the truth is – it”s totally preventable.” – Oxfam

Save the Children, who Oxford HR also work with, are also a part of the campaign.

The ‘Four Big Ifs’ of the campaign say that there can be enough food for everyone:

IF we give enough aid to stop children dying from hunger and help the poorest families feed themselves;
IF governments stop big companies dodging tax in poor countries, so that millions of people can free themselves from hunger;
IF we stop poor farmers being forced off their land and we grow crops to feed people not fuel cars;
IF governments and big companies are honest and open about their actions that stop people getting enough food.

Join the campaign, to help put an end to hunger.
