End World Hunger and Poverty
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.
