Christina Aguilera: 'Quando meus filhos lerem isso em dez anos, espero que a fome seja coisa do passado'

Desde 2009, quando nasceu meu filho Max, sabia que tinha de fazer algo para ajudar outras crianças e famílias ao redor do mundo. Foi quando me tornei Embaixadora Voluntária Contra a Fome do Programa Mundial das Nações Unidas para a Comida (WFP), assim como porta-voz voluntária para a iniciativa contra a fome da Yum!. Mas essa história é mais que minha, ela é a história de milhões de crianças e famílias ao redor do mundo que precisam da nossa ajuda.
