Act for Peace 

Help Fight Famine

Write to your MP now

Right now, 49 million people are facing famine - BUT WE CAN HELP.

Act for Peace, together with Micah Australia and humanitarian agencies from around Australia, are calling on the Australian Government to step up and do our part.

Our new government must urgently deliver $150 million to support the world’s hungriest countries, including communities in the Horn of Africa, Myanmar, Yemen, Afghanistan and Syria.  

Write to your local MP here and call on them to push our new government to do our part in responding to this urgent crisis.


From Afghanistan to Kenya, Act for Peace is working with local partners in many of the countries bearing the brunt of this global food crisis. Already uprooted by conflict and disaster, these communities are now facing life-threatening hunger too. We are in regular contact with our partners on the ground, and are preparing to scale up programs to help them meet their needs in their local communities. But the magnitude of the crisis requires all governments to do their part. 

We must implore our new government to step up and do our part to urgently support communities on the brink of famine. $150 million is only a tiny fraction of our national budget, but it's enough to help save millions of children from life-threatening hunger.

Will you call on our new government to do our part to help fight famine? Write an email to your MP here.
