Every year, about 6 million children under the age of 5 die as a result of hunger and malnutrition, says a study by the United Nations' Food and Agriculture Organization.

Food and other Aid

3 billion human beings live in absolute poverty, on less than $2 a day. 800 million people, many of these children, suffer chronic malnutrition. Every day 20,000 children age 5 or under die from hunger or hunger-related causes. These harsh realities face millions each day, unrelentingly. Enacting our mission to enhance the quality of life for all members of the global community, FCF Project Partners work hard to bring both short-term relief and long-term solutions.
