KC leads global walk vs hunger in Taguig

This is from the ABS-CBN news:

Actress KC Concepcion, United Nations World Food Program (WFP) ambassador, on Sunday led the walk against child hunger at the open field of Bonifacio Global City in Taguig.

Dubbed as "End Hunger: Walk the World," the event, which was participated by an estimated 3,000 people, was aimed at raising public awareness and funds to feed 59 million poor children who attend schools on an empty stomach.

The participants began their walk at 6 a.m. and they circled around the open field for 30 minutes.

Concepcion urged the public to reach out and help the children who are dying because of hunger especially now that prices of basic commodities continue to go up.

Social Welfare Secretary Esperanza Cabral echoed Concepcion’s call, saying that each individual should do his own share to combat hunger.

The walk against hunger, an initiative of WFP, was simultaneously done in other countries.
