Although the world produces more than enough food to feed the entire world and one-third of it gets wasted, leaving hundreds of millions of people hungry, is a tragedy.
People from higly developed countries leave food on the plate, and low- and middle-income countries leave food in the field or lose it in production. This results in millions of malnourished children dying each year from a preventable cause.
Hunger and malnutrition create a self-sustaining barrier that keeps people stuck in poverty. Hunger makes it more difficult for a person to learn, work, pursue opportunities and contribute to society. It drains a person’s energy, destroys mental acuity, and exacts a heavy price on health throughout his or her life.
SAVE A CHILD works with Churches, goverment and non-government organisations to provide support to vulnerable communities to fight against the hunger problem.
