The countries with the biggest problems of malnutrition are in fact the same in which women lack resources, education and opportunities. In rural areas, women produce between 60% and 80% of the food, despite having only 10% of revenues and 1% of the land: if they had the same resources as men, they could feed 150 million people more. Why Oxfam Italy has launched a campaign with women to combat hunger. Last year we were able to directly help 220,000 people in 18 countries, now we want to increase the objectives and results, ensuring women training, resources, access to credit and to the earth. I sincerely thank all the women of The Circle Italy and the passion with which we have devoted time, energy and professionalism. "
