Every day 1 in 9 people around the world go to bed hungry, a staggering 800 million people. 1 in 3 lacks the nutritious food needed to lead a healthy life. Millions of parents struggle to feed their families every day and more than 2 million children die of hunger and malnutrition every year.
Eradicating hunger and malnutrition is a key part of our work. Not only do the consequences of not enough – or the wrong – food cause suffering and poor health, they also slow progress in many other areas of development like education and employment.
