Save the Children supporters are fighting to end world hunger. Almost 100 million fewer children are malnourished today than there were in 1990. Our goal of ending world hunger is becoming a reality.

Yes, Together We Can End World Hunger

Every child deserves to grow up well-nourished. But for millions of children across the world, hunger is their everyday reality.

Relentless hunger is devastating for children. It weakens their immune systems, impacts their physical and mental development and leaves children at risk of infection, including pneumonia, the single biggest killer of children.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With your support, our frontline health teams are working across the world to deliver emergency hunger and nutrition programs to save vulnerable children. Critically, we’re also working to prevent malnutrition from occurring in the first place. But we can’t do it without you!

Hunger Knows No Boundaries

Every parent worries about their baby’s health – are they eating enough, are they growing at a normal rate? The majority of us are lucky: we can provide our children with all the nutrition they need for their bodies and their brains to develop normally.

But for millions of parents in places like Somalia, South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia and Yemen their reality is our worst nightmare: they are watching their children die.

Our teams are saving children’s lives in some of the hungriest places on earth. We are treating malnourished children and providing crucial health services to those who have become dangerously ill from the effects of hunger. We are also preventing more children from getting ill – targeting vulnerable groups with our services in order to protect them before the situation gets worse.

Ways to Help This Holiday Season

You can help us fight child hunger so that all children everywhere can survive and thrive.

By 2030 we aim to ensure no child dies from preventable causes, including those caused, in part, by hunger and malnutrition. But we can’t do it alone.
