Nearly 50 million people are at risk of starvation without urgent, life-saving assistance.
Global hunger increased in 2020 by 25%, reversing decades of progress. This was the combined impact of various conflicts, climate change, and the COVID-19 pandemic. As of April 2022, the World Food Programme now estimates that nearly half of all deaths among children under five are caused by hunger. Many poor farmers can't grow enough food to even feed their own families, let alone provide food for communities who rely on their farms. This inability to produce and sell food results in reduced income that has cascading effects on essentials like educations and healthcare. That's why World Vision partners with communities to address their immediate food needs, but also to equip them to grow food for the long-term.
