Dionne Warwick headlined a special concert in London yesterday, January 9, for World Hunger Day in the UK.
The legendary singer was joined by Natalie Cole and Elaine Paige to raise significant awareness of the very first World Hunger Day and the inspiring work of the The Hunger Project to bring an end to hunger and poverty, as well as to raise funds for the charity’s work in 13 countries across Africa, South Asia and Latin America.
“When [Hunger Project boss] Tim [Holder] first got in touch earlier this year to let me know about the invaluable work that The Hunger Project does around the world, and asked me if I could help him re-launch the charity in the UK, I knew immediately that I wanted to be a part of it all,” said Warwick. “Through my role as Goodwill Ambassador to The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, I know that while emergency famine relief is a necessity in times of crisis, helping mobilize communities to create their own food security and meet their basic needs is vital in securing a sustainable end to hunger.”
