World Hunger is every increasing. Around the world, 795 million people — or around one in nine — are undernourished. Asia and the Pacific account for almost 62 per cent of this section. Yet, the trends are positive, with a decrease in the prevalence of people with undernourishment — from 18.6 pc in 1990-92 to 10.9 percent in 2014-16 worldwide. Do not waste food!

Let us never waste food. Whatever is spared, give it to the poor people. Be thankful for what you have. There are many who have no food at all. The world produces enough food to feed all 7 billion people, but those who go hungry either do not have land to grow food or money to purchase it.
When a mother is undernourished during pregnancy, the baby is often born undernourished, too. Every year, 17 million children are born this way due to a mother’s lack of nutrition before and during pregnancy. Similarly, women in hunger are so deficient of basic nutrients (like iron) that 315,000 die during childbirth from hemorrhaging every year.
In 2010, an estimated 7.6 million children — more than 20,000 a day — died. Poor nutrition plays a role in at least half of these deaths. When it comes to child nutrition, An infant’s future is shaped within the first 1,000 days of life, and chronic malnutrition jeopardizes a child’s chances of living past age 5. We work to ensure children have the best possible start in life with proper nourishment.
Let us end the world hunger!
