World hunger

Update posted by Thabang Speelman On Feb 13, 2021

Today more people die from hunger related diseases than they do from HIV/AIDS, malaria, or tuberculosis combined. In a world where there is enough food for everyone, hunger is still the biggest threat to health. Children are particularly vulnerable; hunger kills millions of children each year. It also stunts their growth – as well as their goals and dreams of a bright future. Hungry children think about survival, not about going to school. In order to survive they have to work, whether in the fields or on the streets. Even if they do attend school, hunger affects their ability to learn, and store information. All of this suffering could be prevented by helping children eat well.
