Appx. 3 Million Children Die Hungry Every Year!
It’s a matter of great concern that children – in the millions have died due to hunger in the past years despite the presence of responsible people, societies and governments. Something needs to be done and everyone can contribute to stop the next 3 million children from dying malnourished. The 3 million figure has come from the World Food Program’s pages as reported here.
What’s being done about it and what can we do about it?
A lot can be done if authorities rise to the occasion. If criminal wastage of food can be stopped, the global agricultural production of food is enough to feed everyone. This is a macro overview of the food waste and hunger situation from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, USDA, Empire State Realty Trust:
And as tweeted by WFP, there’s more to wasting food than meets the eye:

Save the next 3 million
Let’s try to save the next 3 million innocent children and bring this issue to focus so that governments take note and treat the eradication of hunger as the primary focus in all nations. Period.
