No child should die of starvation. Please act now.

<h2>No child should die of starvation. Please act now.</h2>

Hunger is a thief. It robs children of the chance to grow up healthy. In the world’s toughest places, natural disasters, war and conflict are damaging food supplies, and families who rely on food aid are experiencing ration cuts due to a lack of funding, and soaring food and fuel prices.

In countries like Somalia, South Sudan and Ethiopia, famine is looming.

You can provide life-saving food aid to children facing starvation today. You can help stop hunger, malnutrition and the onset of starvation.
