Highlights from Recent Issues of Fresh Bread

Offering of Letters 2019

On Tuesday, June 11, more than 350 advocates in town for Bread for the World’s Advocacy Summit visited 200 congressional offices urging them to co-sponsor and pass the Global Nutrition Resolution (H.Res.189/Collins-Coons Resolution).

The bipartisan resolution recognizes the progress made against malnutrition due to strong U.S. leadership, but that more needs to be done.

Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) are expected to introduce a similar version of H.Res.189 in the Senate.


Yemen remains the world’s worst humanitarian crisis. The United Nations reports that half of the population is already facing near-famine conditions and is entirely reliant on aid for survival. At least 400,000 children younger than age 5 are at risk of death from malnutrition.

Bread is following legislation pending in Congress regarding the sale of arms to the Saudi-Emirati coalition.
