Every minute of every day, more than 5 children die as a result of malnutrition, according to estimates.
Millions more live with the lifetime effects of not having the food they need to live and grow – physical disabilities and learning difficulties.
The start of a child`s life is a critical time. Without enough of the nutrients they need at this vital time, children`s bodies and brains don`t develop the way they should.
PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD ARE ON THE EDGE OF FAMINE
When you donate to the Muslim Welfare Trust, your generosity is immediately put to work helping build a world with zero hunger. You can help save lives.
The majority of affected people live in countries in Africa. However, acute hunger is set to rise steeply in most world regions, from the Middle East to Latin America and the Caribbean.
Famines tend to occur in areas where humanitarian access is restricted. In Yemen and South Sudan in particular, conflict, insecurity, and resulting displacement are driving up levels of acute hunger to alarming levels.
In 2021, 584,000 people will likely face famine-like conditions in Ethiopia, Madagascar, South Sudan and Yemen. Nigeria and Burkina Faso are also of particular concern because they have in recent months had pockets of people in famine-like conditions.
The threat of famine and starvation is also growing in Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti, Honduras, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, Venezuela and Zimbabwe. 45 million people in 43 countries are currently on the very edge of famine and risk starvation, up from 27 million people in 2019.
It takes extraordinary people who want to do something, not just talk about it, to make our fundraising success. We are extremely grateful to all of those who have taken action and started fundraising for the widows and orphans we help.
