Friday 16th October is World Food Day; a worldwide event designed to increase awareness, understanding and informed, year-around action to alleviate hunger.
This day, declared by the UN General Assembly, aims to heighten public awareness of world food problems and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty. The theme for World Food Day 2020 is 'Grow, nourish, sustain. Together.'
Each year, on 16th October, Concern Worldwide joins organisations around the world in commemorating World Food Day, marking the day the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) was founded in 1945. Concern Worldwide, whose motto is tackling hunger, transforming lives highlight some incredibly worthy causes on their website, such as the plight of people such as Sallay from Sierra Leone. Sallay amazingly survived Ebola following a one month battle in hospital, however her struggle was far from over. She lost Abdul, her husband and companion of 40 years, and her whole community was devastated by the disease. Her family and neighbours were quarantined to help prevent the spread of Ebola, but this resulted in the crops they rely on for food being left to die in the fields. Sallay, and what remains of her community, may have survived Ebola but they then faced a life where they had nothing.
Our current global crisis will have an impact on many communities too.
The World Farmers' Organisation (WFO) wholeheartedly supports this year's theme, since it reflects a clear intention to highlight important agriculture-related issues and draws attention to achievements in rural development and encourages agricultural food production. WFO state that in this context, the role played by the farmers is crucial, because farmers play a key role in the process of fighting hunger and finding concrete remedies that address issues affecting food security and nutrition.
World action days like this help communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives. Harmony Healing utilises Ancient Egyptian Philosophies to bring balance and harmony to people.
Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 - a new series of virtual interactive training modules started with Violet Flame on Thursday 15th October (this is still open for late start participants) and Khemitology Tuesday 20th October, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events.
Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings and MP3 meditations are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.
