The people of Caritas Panama have taken up the END HUNGER
campaign to another level with this beautiful and moving song, LEVANTO MI VOZ POR QUIEN NO TIENE PAN (I raise my voice for those who have no bread).
The international campaign hinges on a very simple premise: There is enough food in the world and it should be shared with all. But do we believe this?
believes that it is a scandal that nearly a billion people are hungry today in a world that has the resources to feed everyone. The more than 160 national organisations that make up Caritas Internationalis
are joining together in their first ever global campaign to call for an end to hunger by 2025.
Pope Francis kicked off the Caritas Campaign with a video message by saying that food is not just a basic need but it is also a right. But it is a right which is trampled on every day for the 842 million children, women and men who are hungry in the world. He said, “We are in front of a global scandal of around one billion – one billion people who still suffer from hunger today. We cannot look the other way and pretend this does not exist. The food available in the world is enough to feed everyone.”
And the people of Caritas Panama believe that a great way to rally people to support a campaign is through music. The song, was written, produced and performed by a collaboration of Panamanian Catholic artists and professionals.
How will you support this campaign to end world hunger by 2025?
