The British Commonwealth is dedicated to assisting nations
in the war against hunger.
To support the decision of the United Nations'
Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to establish the world campaign against hunger, Burma issued special postage stamps.
Two stamp designs, 1954 definitive issue of 10 Pyas in yellowish green and 50 Pyas in blue. These designs were originally
the designs of the 1949 first anniversary independence issue stamps, a cultivator with his yoke of oxen plowing a paddy, and
a group of cultivators at work in a paddy field. The currency of the stamps were changed to the Burmese Monetary System. These
stamps were overprinted with the words "FREEDOM FROM HUNGER" in the center of the stamps in violet and red colors.
These stamps were sold to the public on March 21, 1963.
