Why Hunger?

We’ve all felt the grumbling ache of hunger at one point or another, but for most of us, there is almost always a source of food to quench it. In many parts of the world, hunger pain is not only a regular part of life, it is deadly. A child dies from hunger-related causes every 11 seconds. When families don’t have proper crops to feed their families or enough money to buy food, they are left with bleak alternatives. Nearly 1 in 5 people survive on less than $1.25 a day. The poor spend nearly half of their money on food—leaving little for other necessities like school fees and healthcare.

When you raise money to end hunger, you are helping provide real, sustainable solutions, not just giving food handouts. World Vision provides tools and training to help farmers feed their families, and offer loans to help parents start businesses that put food on the family table. Heard of the phrase "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime"? We work for a solution that will last for lifetimes to come.
