WHY BANGLADESH NEEDS YOU TO FIGHT TODAY:
The rate of malnutrition in Bangladesh is nearly the highest in the world.
Injustice is rife leaving children vulnerable to malnutrition and food insecurity.
The funds raised through this year’s Famine will go towards establishing emergency feeding programmes, teaching families how to grow veggies and improving access to health and nutrition services.
