The Global Hunger Crisis

While the conflict in Ukraine is dominating news cycles, there is another global crisis unfolding that the world isn’t talking about: the greatest hunger crisis of the century.

811 million people are hungry right now.

Conflict, climate shocks and COVID-19 are contributing to a dramatic escalation in food insecurity. If all the hungry people in the world formed an imaginary country, this country would be the third largest on the planet.

Worldwide, one in eight people, many of them children, will go hungry tonight. Teenagers and children under five are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition. Adolescent girls are at risk of early and forced marriage or early pregnancy, as well as sexual violence, exploitation and being made to leave school.

“45 million people globally could be on the verge of famine-like conditions including starvation and death by May 2022.”

But, if we act now, we can help save lives. Millions of children, and especially girls, are in urgent need of food.
