Over the last few months campaigners in the UK have been contacting their Members of Parliament (MPs) asking them to show support for the Charter to End Extreme Hunger. A petition signed by 15,000 people will be handed over to the UK Prime Minister David Cameron today (Wednesday, 18 January) calling on him to endorse the Charter. This week campaigners have been tweeting their MPs asking them to raise a question to Prime Minister David Cameron in Parliament this Wednesday.
