Children’s Hunger Crisis

No child should die from hunger. Will you help give children desperately needed food?

No child should die from hunger. Yet sadly, each year 3 million children around the world do.

And in countries like South Sudan, Ethiopia and Yemen, the hunger crisis is only getting worse. Children are teetering on the edge of survival - facing a food shortage which is fast spiralling towards famine.

Children urgently need food to survive.  

Can you spare $33 can give 60 packets of nutritious superfood to save the lives of hungry children?

Just 3 packets a day for six to eight weeks can be all it takes to pull a starving or malnourished child back from the brink.

What sort of food do malnourished children need?

It’s known as ready-to-use-therapeutic food (RUTF) but we call it superfood. It comes in a packet, and contains a high-energy, high-protein peanut paste containing sugar, vegetable oil and skimmed milk powder, and enriched with vitamins and minerals.

And even better, one packet of this lifesaving superfood costs just 55 cents!

These supplies are vital to save the lives of starving and malnourished children. They contain all the essential nutrients a child needs and can be delivered, stored and used in even the worst emergency situations – where cooking may be impossible.

But to feed hungry children, we need your help today.

Food insecurity is a problem for many countries around the world. And with each day that passes, more and more children are going hungry.

Please make an emergency donation today and help feed vulnerable children.
