End World Hunger and Poverty

Every Face of Hunger Has a Story

Just $1 a Day Can Provide a Much Happier Ending!

1 billion people live on less than $1 a day

No one should have to go to bed hungry

There's enough food in the world for everyone, but one person in eight goes hungry every night, and 2.3 million children die each year from malnutrition. Hunger and malnutrition kill more people each year than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

When there's drought or famine or food prices spike, entire communities can go without food. People suffer from hunger when conflict and disaster force families from their homes and cut them off from their farms, their jobs and their possessions. And gender discrimination can strengthen hunger's deadly grip, by leaving women — moms — without the means to feed themselves and their children.

With your help, people around the world can get the nutrition they need today and access education, resources and tools they need to create long-term solutions to hunger and poverty.

Every Child Deserves a 5th Birthday

But, this year, more than 7 million children will die before they hit that milestone.

Nearly all of these deaths occur in poor countries and almost every one of them can be prevented.

The good news is that low-cost interventions, such as adequate nutrition, bed nets and skilled health workers, keep children alive. In fact, child mortality rates have dropped 70 percent during the past 50 years.
