Help Fight Famine

Wednesday, 5 April 2023

Global Mission Partners is a long-time partner of Micah Australia, a coalition of Australia's leading Christian international development agencies. Micah leads advocacy campaigns like, Help Fight Famine, to connect and equip Christians to think and act justly in engaging our nation’s political leaders to create significant change.

Help Fight Famine brings together Australian organisations and individuals who want the Australian Government to support immediate relief to the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa with a Famine Prevention Package of $150 million. This will help avert catastrophe in the worst-affected hunger hotspots in the Horn of Africa, Afghanistan, Syria and Yemen.

Help Fight Famine has campaigned for and won $40m in funding so far for the global hunger crisis and food-related emergencies, with $15m last year from the government and an extra $25m granted in February 2023.

Through Help Fight Famine, the Australian Government is also being urged to commit to a longer-term global food strategy, leveraging Australia’s scientific expertise and diplomacy.
