Forty-five million people in 43 countries are on the brink of starvation if they don’t get urgent, life-saving assistance.
Despite decades of progress, generations of people are stuck in vicious cycles of poverty and hunger – not knowing where their next meal might come from or whether their hard work can withstand life’s setbacks. Nearly half of all deaths among children under 5 are caused by hunger (World Food Programme, April 2022).
In addition, due to the conflict in Ukraine, the World Food Programme estimates that the 276 million people facing acute food insecurity could rise to between 309 million and 323 million.
World Vision is working to change this. We believe a hunger free world is possible – where everyone has enough food for today and for tomorrow. When you give a single-gift, or give monthly to become a World Vision CRISIS CHILD PARTNER, you’ll help eradicate extreme hunger and poverty for children in need by providing things like nutritious food, seeds, tools and training.
