Nearly more than 10,000 children die from hunger-related causes every day. Furthermore, an estimated figure of around 22% of children under the age of 5 suffers from stunted growth due to serious malnourishment. When it comes to global hunger, children are the most vulnerable as they have no means to help themselves.
Hence, let’s go over how we can take action in order to feed the children suffering from hunger and related causes.
Feed the Children
Child hunger is a consistent issue that affects nearly millions of children every day all over the world. The issue of child hunger is more prevalent in deprived areas, or regions with ongoing conflicts. Child hunger also indirectly contributes to global poverty, as children suffering from hunger are unable to break the ongoing cycle of poverty that they have been living in since their birth.
Children suffering from starvation lack focus which in return makes them stay one step behind as compared to children who are provided with timely meals. Child hunger doesn’t refer to the instance of missing a meal once, rather it refers to severe food insecurity that forces one to go hungry for days on end.
Sadly, 45% of deaths in children under 5 are due to undernourishment. Child hunger is becoming a massive issue hence, it is our utmost responsibility to feed the children through our donations and support!
