The Problem - World Hunger

The Problem - World Hunger

Today more people die from hunger related diseases than they do from HIV/AIDS, malaria or tuberculosis combined.  In a world where there is enough food for everybody, hunger is still the biggest threat to health.  Children are particularly vulnerable.  Hunger kills millions of them each year.  It also stunts their growth and their dreams.  Hungry children think about survival, not about going to school. 

The Solution - Mary's Meals
An education can set a child free from poverty in adult life.  To gain an education children first need to attend school and then be given the opportunity to learn.
