One of the primary symptoms of poverty in children around the world is hunger. The facts about hunger clearly show its relationship to other symptoms of poverty such as malnutrition, low birth rate and poor health. In fact, the hunger facts are just a small glimpse into the destruction that poverty causes.
Each year, millions of children die from malnutrition. This is one of the most sobering facts about hunger – it steals life from the most innocent and vulnerable … children. Hunger is preventable, but it requires knowledge and action.
Thanks to Compassion’s intervention, for more than a million children around the world, the facts about hunger are no longer an issue. Through Compassion’s sponsorship program, they receive proper nutrition and adequate health care.
When you sponsor a child in Compassion’s program, you eliminate one of the most pervasive symptoms of poverty – hunger. As a sponsor you can literally change the facts about hunger for a child in need. Why not get started today?
