  8. NON PRESIDER ANNOUNCEMENT—BREAD FOR THE WORLD
    My name is Carol Brophy.   Today, nearly 821 million people in the world remain hungry.  Almost half of all child deaths worldwide are linked to malnutrition. This situation can be remedied by increasing funding for global child nutrition programs.  

    Bread for the world is a faith-based organization that advocates for people living in hunger in the US and abroad.  I am here to urge you to participate in a Bread for the world offering of letters in which people of faith write letters to Congress in support of their brothers and sisters living with food insufficiency.   This year’s campaign asks Congress to increase funding for global nutrition and to support a resolution addressing maternal and child nutrition. Please join us in the gathering space to write a letter to our Congressional leaders urging support for this important initiative.  Thank you.
