Every 10 Minutes, A Child Dies of Hunger

In summer 2017, an unprecedented humanitarian crisis swept across nothern Africa and the Middle East: 20 million people, in an area spanning from Nigeria to Yemen, were threatened by starvation.

For the first time, eight of the leading U.S.-based international relief organizations joined forces to raise awareness and launch a joint fundraising appeal to the American public—the Hunger Relief Fund—to respond to this unprecedented global hunger crisis.

Sadly, children are the most vulnerable in a hunger crisis. Whether cut off from food by drought or ongoing violence, children are suffering.

Partnership and Collective Action Is Key

Today, the need for urgent aid continues to expand. An increase in natural disasters, conflict-related refugees and food insecurity worldwide are all contributing to a humanitarian system that is dangerously underfunded. The United Nations’ Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs estimates that one out of every 70 people around the world is in need of humanitarian assistance. And the need surrounding disasters is lasting longer than in previous year, now averaging nine years.
