THE STORY:

Families trying to survive in extreme poverty must often make agonizing choices between eliminating their children's hunger and buying the medicine they need. A billion chronically hungry people -- mostly women and children -- are losing their hope for a better future.

Please help defeat world hunger -- there is still so much more that NEEDS to be done:

*25,000 lives are lost every day from hunger and poverty (United Nations)

* This year 11 million children younger than 5 will die needlessly, more than half from hunger-related causes (United Nations)

*Poor families spend over 70% of their income on food. (An average American family spends just over 10%).
WFP (World Food Programme) is the world's largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security. WFP provides food, on average, to 90 million people per year, 58 million of whom are children. From its headquarters in Rome and more than 80 country offices around the world, WFP works to help people who are unable to produce or obtain enough food for themselves and their families. It is a member of the United Nations Development Group and part of its Executive Committee
