Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah to join David Cameron at hunger summit | The Guardian

Mo Farah, the British 10,000m gold medal winner, is expected to be among a clutch of sports figures to attend a world-hunger summit with David Cameron on Sunday.

The Downing Street meeting is likely to set a target to reduce the number of children stunted by malnourishment worldwide by as much as 17 million by 2016.

The primary goal is to highlight child malnutrition and its resulting physical stunting as the chief issue where progress is lacking in the development field.

A new global target to reduce the number of stunted children by 40%, or 70 million, by 2025 has been agreed by the World Health Assembly.
