Right now, almost one out of seven of us is hungry. Worldwide, that translates to 925 million under-fed, under-nourished and chronically hungry people. Children are the most visible victims. Every 6 seconds a child dies because of hunger and related causes. Poor nutrition plays a role in the deaths of at least 5 million kids each year, but lack of food also magnifies the effect of every disease that might plague young children, including measles and malaria. Additionally, hunger and malnutrition deter children from attending school and decrease their capacity for learning, thereby continuing the vicious cycle of poverty. Two-thirds of the world’s undernourished live in just 7 countries – Bangladesh, China, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, India and Pakistan.
