Make A Difference Today.

In this age, in this world, the statistics relating to world poverty and hunger is astounding:

  • more than 500 million people are living in “absolute poverty” and more than 15 million children die of hunger every year.
  • World Health Organization estimates that one-third of the population is underfed and another third is starving, that means two third  the Earth citizens are facing the problem of putting enough food in their stomach. no more food wastage in any household!!!
  • Even in the United States, 46 percent of African-American children and 49 percent of Latino children are considered chronically hungry.

Heifer International is one of the organisations responsible in lifting people out of poverty by providing communities with livestock and agricultural training to improve lives and inspire hope. Do you know of any other communities or organisations that are trying to solve hunger problem in any way at all?

Think about this: before educating a child, or anybody for that matter, one’s stomach must be fed first.
