Helping The World’s Hungriest

Today is World Food Day. This is a day to focus on those 805 million people who are suffering from chronic undernourishment as a result of not having access to regular, nutritious meals. This includes 300 million children who go to bed hungry every day.

The Millenium Development Goals were set up in 2000 by 189 countries in order to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger and also to improve 7 other global goals by 2015. The results are groundbreaking: in the past 15 years, we successfully reduced poverty and hunger globally by 50% and achieved considerable success in the other targets, as well. But there is still a long way to go. During last month’s UN Sustainable Development Summit, the MDGs were declared a success and a new agenda was set in its place: the Sustainable Development Goals. These 17 goals are universal and can be adapted by any nation globally, down to the very last citizen. You are encouraged to select a goal and get active to contribute to a global success.

More recently UNICEF in partnership with the World Food Programme (WFP) deployed a mobile emergency relief team to assist more than 27,000 people in South Sudan. These people had been cut off from relief agencies for months due to insecurities.
