PEOPLE IN MANY COUNTRIES FACING IMMINENT FAMINE
820 million people around the world are starving or suffering from malnutrition. These people have nothing to eat and their plates are empty every day. There are several key causes all occurring simultaneously: as a result of the climate crisis, wars, and the coronavirus pandemic, people are currently facing the biggest global hunger crisis of the century. Also, the ongoing war in Ukraine has already led to rising food prices, which in turn has led to a rapid increase in the number of malnourished children. We have to stop this.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations, 5.7 million children under the age of five are currently suffering from malnutrition. In addition to countries in the Middle East such as Yemen and Syria, the situations in the central Sahel, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Afghanistan are particularly alarming.
How we help
