WORLD HUNGER

Help the hungry

They do need your help please help them

There are 870 million undernourished people in the world today. That  means one in eight people do not get enough food to be healthy and lead  an active life. Hunger and malnutrition are in fact the number one risk  to the health worldwide.

Among the key causes of hunger are natural disasters, conflict,  poverty, poor agricultural infrastructure and over-exploitation of the  environment. Hunger does not only weigh on the individual. It also imposes a  crushing economic burden on the developing world. Economists estimate  that every child whose physical and mental development isstunted by hunger and malnutrition stands to lose 5-10 percent in lifetime earnings.
