About Peace SOS
A better and fairer world for all
Peace SOS is a young and versatile initiative striving for peace. We devote ourselves towards a better and fairer world for all, using the power of the word, and combining our hearts and minds. Peace SOS is concerned about the current situation in the world. Think for example of the people struggling to survive in war situations (Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Ukraine, etc.), the astronomical number of refugees (nearly 60 million in 2014), child marriages and the millions still dying from hunger. Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth (source World Food Programme).
There’s enough food today for everyone
According to the World Food Programme of the United Nations, there is enough food in the world today for everyone to be able to live a healthy and productive life. Global military spending is more than ten times the amount spent on international aid. In 2010, total world military spending came to $1629 billion, compared to $130.5 billion for overseas aid (Stockholm International Centre Peace Research Institute).
