HUNGER

Working to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals 2

Globally, hunger kills more people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Poor food security is also causing millions of children to be stunted, or too short for the ages, due to severe malnutrition.

Ironically, on a global scale over 40% of food goes to waste, the majority of which is dumped in landfills producing methane and contributing to climatic problems.

Asia is the continent with the hungriest people – two thirds of its population.

Southern Asia faces the greatest hunger burden, with about 281 million undernourished people.

In India, over 200 million people go to bed hungry every night, the world’s highest number of undernourished people.

1.3 million children die every year in India due to malnutrition.

We partner with Feeding India to end hunger and malnutrition in India by providing food to vulnerable people.

Hunger and malnutrition cripple an individual and his/her family, forcing them to enter a vicious cycle of poverty. A hungry person cannot benefit from education programs or empowerment programs.

In sub-Saharan Africa almost 23% of the population is undernourished.

Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45 percent) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year.
