Right now, an estimated 200 million children are at deadly risk due to severe, and increasing, food insecurity. This is the heartbreaking by-product of ongoing wars and instability, natural and man-made disasters, climate extremes and income inequality.
According to UNICEF, girls and boys living in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen — countries whose residents suffer from conflict, drought and poverty — are the most urgently affected. But the crisis doesn’t stop there. Worldwide, there are now 37 million more undernourished people than there were just three years ago — a rapid upward trend that is hitting Africa and South America the hardest.
Thankfully, there are real, effective ways to address this problem. And we can do it, together.
Once again, we have partnered with food-relief organizations who generously donate tons of food for the desperately hungry children and families in our care. Now, we just need your help to get this food from the shipping docks and into their mouths.
Even a modest gift can be life-changing. For every $1 you donate, we can provide $20 worth of food!
As you begin planning your Thanksgiving celebration this year, please join us in remembering those who have very little to eat … if nothing at all.
Your generosity today helps us give life-saving meals to thousands of desperate children and families around the world.
