What is Operation Hunger Days (Nälkäpäivä), 16-18 September 2010?

Operation Hunger Day is the biggest annual collection arranged by the Finnish Red Cross. During the three-day operation, the Red Cross collects donations for the Disaster Relief Fund all over Finland. This year, the theme of Hunger Day is hunger – its causes and effects. There are over one billion malnourished people in the world today. That is more than ever before. Hunger is also the top cause of death in the world, even though more food is being produced than ever before. More info here in English:Operation Hunger Day
