Church World Service is urging President Obama to support humanitarian programs that fight world hunger.
In a letter sent yesterday, CWS stated, "We urge you to seek increased funding for these programs, which bring new hope to communities around the world and contribute to a more secure world for all people."
Should funding be reduced for these programs it would limit the ability of aid groups to fight hunger in many countries including war-torn Afghanistan, South Sudan and Syria.
CWS is also urging a direct attack on child malnutrition, "to reduce the number of stunted children by 70 million by 2025," and to support small farmers worldwide.
