About the Cause: Child Hunger
Hunger remains number one cause of death in the world. In India 194.4 million people are undernourished which accounts to 14.5% of the population. Malnourishment is rampant and around 37.9% of the children aged under five in India are stunted, while the other 20.8% suffer from wasting, meaning their weight is too low for their height.
Malnourished children have a higher risk of death from common childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria.
