The pandemic plus climate change are causing more children to go hungry

Join us in raising $500,000 by December 31 to provide families with urgent and long-term food security support.

Food Insecurity is on the Rise Globally

The negative affects of climate change and the pandemic mean more children face food insecurity

In 2020, 2.3 billion
people lacked year-round
access to adequate food.

More than 155 million
people were suffering
from acute hunger.

Projections for the
rest of 2021 indicate
that trend will continue.

A report in July by five UN agencies found that climate shocks and the pandemic are predicted to exacerbate the situation further. Source

"We are in a crisis. There is no food and no job."

- Julio from Bolivia
