It's the word you use when you haven't eaten in a couple hours. It's when you go to your kitchen and find a snack.
It's the feeling of hunger. It's when your tummy grumbles. It's the feeling you get when you want to eat.
It's the reality for 870 million people. It's more than a feeling. It's been more than a couple hours since they ate.
They are starving.
Their starvation will likely lead to disabilities and death. They do not have enough food.
Almost 15% of people in developing countries are hungry - starving. Starvation causes stunted growth (mental and physical) and other health problems. Almost half of the deaths of children worldwide are caused by malnutrition, a result of not enough food.
By sponsoring a child, you stop that. Starvation will not be a reality for the child anymore. She may not still have as much food as you, but she will have nutritious food that will help her grow.
Save a child's life. End starvation for a child. Sponsor a child today.
