The child that is hungry must be fed

“The child that is hungry must be fed…”

These were the words written by Save the Children founder Eglantyne Jebb in 1922, which later became part of the world’s first declaration of rights of the child. This declaration of children’s rights was adopted by the League of Nations in 1924, and evolved to become the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child in 1990. It continues to inspire all of Save the Children’s work.

Today, we continue to save the lives of children around the world dying from hunger. Join our Race Against Hunger: http://bit.ly/LjHZor
