THE Bishop of Derby has backed a new international campaign designed to make dramatic progress towards ending world hunger.

The Right Reverend Dr Alastair Redfern supported ‘IF’ after it was launched by a coalition of more than 100 charities, including Oxfam, Action Aid and Unicef.

He said: “IF is a very small word but it can have enormous consequences and this campaign asks all of us to use the word ‘IF’ for ourselves – our spending, our resources, our praying, our hopes for a better world in 2013.

“IF we can join together then many more people can be lifted out of hunger.”
