Lula reiterates commitment to fighting hunger in Brazil

Brasilia, Nov 10 (Prensa Latina) President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on Thursday reiterated his commitment to fighting hunger in Brazil, where it plagues more than 30 million people, according to official surveys.

If when this mandate ends (2026), every Brazilian is having coffee, lunch, and dinner, once again I will have fulfilled the mission of life,’ said Lula visibly moved during a meeting with political allies at the Banco do Brasil Cultural Center in this capital, where the government transition team is operating.

Among participants were Vice President-elect Gerardo Alckmin and the president of the Workers’ Party, Gleisi Hoffmann.

When he addressed the issue of famine, the former labor leader, who defeated far-right President Jair Bolsonaro at the polls on October 30, began to cry and was given a standing ovation by the audience.

In the sequence, Lula took the floor again and affirmed that he ‘never expected’ that hunger would return to this South American nation.

According to the National Survey on Food Insecurity in the Context of the Covid-19 Pandemic, more than 30 million people are hungry in Brazil.
