Some Hunger Facts:
One of the primary symptoms of poverty in children is hunger. The facts about hunger clearly show its relationship to other symptoms of poverty around the world such as malnutrition, low birth rate and poor health.
Hunger and malnutrition are self-perpetuating. They sap a person’s energy, strangling mental ability, exacting a price on health and making it more difficult to learn, work and lead productive lives. This is one of the most sobering facts about hunger; it steals life from the vulnerable.
Hunger is preventable, but it requires knowledge and action. The fact that the world produces more than enough food to feed the entire world population and hundreds of millions of people don’t have access to the food produced is tragic. Because of this, millions of children die from malnutrition each year.
