Brazil was one of the key countries holding Walk the World events this year. Hunger lessons were held in schools throughout the country, a kick-off event was held in Guarulhos, Sao Paulo featuring an orchestra of local children, and two fantatic walks were held in Salvador di Bahia and Guarulhos.
A competition was launched for children to write about their vision to end child hunger. The winners, Alexandre Santos Moncorvo from Salvador and Claudiorrane de Brito Santos from Guarulhos, won a trip to the offices of Fight Hunger in Rome! They have just arrived today with their teachers, Enaide dos Santos Tavares and Michel Viera Carvalhais, and we're delighted to welcome them here, hear their ideas about fighting hunger in Brazil and show them around Rome.
