, According to FAO figures the number of malnourished people worldwide increased by 75 million in 2007 to an estimated total of 925 million.

, The Indian restaurant sector provides around 170 million meals a year, sufficient for nearly 3 meals per person of the UK population.

, One child in the world dies every 5 seconds from hunger related causes.

, 23 million people in Britain eat out regularly ( more than once each year).

Together we can help by taking the pound pledge and becoming a 'Curry3'.

All you need to do is email your pledge (name, town, email address) to donate just £1 a year to info@thecurrytree.com and it will be called upon during National Curry Week in November each year, and then undertake to pass this message on to at least 3 friends or contacts for them to consider joining us as well.

If all 23 million of us join the Tree, just think what we could do.

Funds raised will be allocated to deserving causes around poverty, disaster and malnutrition each year by the trustees which include some of the top people in the Indian restaurant sector.

(email details will not be passed on or sold to any third party and only be used to call on the pledge or to provide information about National Curry Week, The Curry Tree or related matters.)
