Around 800 million are hungry, 2 billion suffer from “hidden hunger” and about the same number are overweight. Various means by which this problem could be ameliorated and, in some instances, solved will be presented. This is an important topic and central to the work of Purley Overseas Trust. Please come along and find out more!
