For the first time in history, the number of hungry people in the world has passed the 1 billion mark. One in six people go to bed desperately hungry every night. And last year, an estimated 5 million young children died from complications from acute malnutrition.
These figures point to an urgent crisis. But since hunger is not a result of global food shortages, there is hope. The knowledge and tools to end hunger are readily available. And everyone's help can make a difference!
As I've learned about the realities of global hunger, and taken part in various mission experiences, I've been inspired to take my own action -- so I joined Action Against Hunger as a citizen advocate to help end hunger. With your contributions towards my fundraising goal, I can help Action Against Hunger bring immediate relief and long-term solutions to starving children and families around the world.
Please bookmark this page if you're interested in keeping track of my progress.
