Renowned and controversial Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimovic has tattooed the names of 50 people suffering from starvation on his body to bring the issue of world hunger to the attention of United Nations World Food.
He revealed the tattoos after scoring in a Paris Saint-Germain vs Cain match he described as his most important game to date.
Zlatan said he would have got the names of all starving people in the world, but with over 805 million of them, there are just too many:
These people don’t often make the front page, yet hunger and malnutrition are the number one risk to health worldwide — greater than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
This is a campaign from the World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian agency fighting hunger worldwide. In emergencies, they get food to where it is needed, saving the lives of victims of war, civil conflict and natural disasters. WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.
