Poverty is the principal cause of hunger. The causes of poverty include poor people’s lack of resources, an extremely unequal income distribution in the world and within specific countries, conflict, and hunger itself.
Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year.
Food is essential to all human beings yet food availability and accessibility remain a challenge for many. A great number of children in the world go without any food, many for days at a time. With the rising cost of living, providing a balanced diet for children who live in abject poverty is just but a dream. Getting one meal a day, that is not balanced is more the norm than the exception. Cases of malnutrition are thus rampant.
In response to such challenges, ISRA-UK implements feeding programs during Ramadan, Qurbani and throughout the year targeting poor families who are most vulnerable to hunger and starvation in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
