Action Against Hunger

 

ISU Team ran 95km today for the Action Against Hunger association!

Originated by a number of French volunteers (a.o. Noble-Prize winners), an initiative has grown targeting to fight against hunger in the world on a global scale, irrespective of the source thereof. The organization, Action Contre la Faim (Action against Hunger) organizes a number of events with the objective to collect funds to help suffering populations.

Action against Hunger is now recognized as one of the leading organizations in the fight against hunger worldwide; for more information see also: http://www.actioncontrelafaim.org/en

ISU staff have taken part in the first “Action contre la Faim” inter-company challenge organized  Friday 17 October in the Innovation Park during lunchtime from 12.00-14.00. The event aims to gather funds for vulnerable populations across the world. Participants walk or run during 1,5 hrs, whereby each organization will contribute 15 euro for each kilometer covered.

As one of the objectives of the collection is also to raise funds for wells and provision of potable water, this action fits very well with the Global Water Initiative, which the ISU participants will study this academic year as a Team Project.

Indeed, although fresh water is worldwide available, it is not always there when and where it is needed. The Project will therefore address the expected near-future of the world’s water problem; identify candidate solutions that might be available; and investigate how space can help.

This project will also be based upon a previous study made by ISU participants, named H2OPE and which is available on line from the ISU Library by clicking HERE

ISU is hoping that the study planned will contribute to solve this menacing problem and related migration issues, and is evidently looking forward to find support for this important study.
