World Hunger Crisis

Don’t let the future starve. Donate now and help children worldwide overcome hunger and malnutrition.

About this appeal

Malnutrition contributes to nearly half of all under-five deaths.

And now due to the impact of COVID-19, an estimated 54 million children could suffer from wasting – an extreme life-threatening form of malnutrition.

We urgently need your help to save lives.

Please donate now and provide urgently needed food for malnourished children.

Just $63 can provide enough therapeutic food for a malnourished child's full recovery.

Hunger and malnutrition deprive children of essential nutrients, making them susceptible to severe versions of common sicknesses and diseases, and can lead to poor growth, development and stunting.

Over time this can worsen into wasting, which makes malnourished children incredibly thin and weak - putting kids at greater risk of dying, starvation and developing life-long debilitating conditions.

The need is great. But there is hope.

UNICEF is the world’s largest supplier of therapeutic food, which is used to treat malnutrition. Each sachet is just 50 cents, and 3 sachets a day for 6-8 weeks is enough to nourish a malnourished child back to health. With your help, we can reach children before it’s too late.

Don’t let the future starve.

Please donate now and help fight world hunger.

How will you help

While we are so thankful for every gift, monthly donations will go the furthest when it comes to getting children affected by hunger and malnutrition back to a safe and healthy weight.

92% of malnourished children make a full recovery when they’re supported – so your donations truly make a difference.

Not only can hunger be painful and deadly for children. It can cause severe life-long issues for kids that don’t receive proper treatment.


MUAC bands and therapeutic superfood are essential tools to treat malnourished children effectively.

Just 50c can buy one packet of life-saving superfood, containing all the nutrients a malnourished child needs. And all it takes is $63 to provide six weeks worth of superfood - which is often enough for one child to fully recover!

Your kind donations will relieve the immediate needs of children facing hunger crises around the world – helping kids survive and getting them back on track for a brighter future.

Meanwhile, UNICEF will continue to carry out long-term development to ensure the root causes of hunger are wiped out.

Together, we can stop this crisis. Please donate now.
