World Food Day 2011
Today is World Food Day and we have good news to report — there are fewer underweight children in developing countries: a major improvement in the last decade. But millions still need help. Rising food prices and natural disasters have hit the most vulnerable around the world. Drought in Africa, monsoon floods in Pakistan, and other catastrophes have devastated crops and livestock — putting lives at risk. Progress isn’t coming fast enough for those who need it the most.
Ways You Can Help
There is no silver bullet against child hunger and malnutrition. But comprehensive strategies that address the complex nature of the problem do work. Save the Children fights child hunger around the world — along with striving to help children over come despair, violence and illness. With your generous gift to the Global Action Fund, you help us carry out our worldwide mission to create lasting change in the lives of children in need. Some need food, medicine or books — other in need of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
Charitable contributions from people like you make it possible for us to support child hunger programs, and so much more. Please support our mission and work around the world with a gift to our Global Action Fund. You can count on us to be good stewards of your generous donation, helping vulnerable children where the need is greatest with whatever they need the most.
