We see it as a priority that the world’s 20 richest nations should do everything in our power to overcome the hunger that still affects so many of our fellow human beings,” they said.The Australian Government takes over the presidency of the G20 next month from the Russians. It has not yet announced its priorities for the year.The Anglican Alliance is a charitable company and part of the world-wide Anglican Communion with 88 million members in over 160 countries, including a major presence in 13 of the G20 countries. About half of all Anglicans are in Africa, including in some of the poorest countries where hunger and poverty are major problems.
