Over 20 crore Indians will sleep HUNGRY tonight
Lets play our small part in a noble cause to FEED the HUNGRY.
Each day around 795 million people sleep hungry on earth. India itself is home to around 200
million people who are under-nourished and starving for their daily food requirements. That
makes upto a quarter of all undernourished people worldwide, making it a key issue to focus
on a global scale. Over 7000 Indians die of hunger every day which builds to over 25 lakhs
on yearly terms.
Hunger leads to malnutrition in children causing measles, pneumonia and diarrhea which eventually builds into an unnecessary loss of about 3 million young lives a year. Despite substantial improvement in health since independence and a growth rate of 8 GDP percent in recent years, under-nutrition remains a silent emergency in India, with almost 50 percent of Indian children underweight and more than 70 percent of the women and children are with serious nutritional deficiencies.
There are also millions of homeless elderly persons suffering with starvation and ill-health. Most of the elderly women are having anaemic problem due to lack of food.
Join us to #FightHunger at GSE Red and help us to serve people who starve. There are poor homeless people who gather at a Temple in our locality (Bhikardas Maruti Mandir, Sadashiv Peth, Pune). They suffer to meet their food needs and hence beg on the streets to feed themselves. We have decided to provide them with food on coming festivals to make their life a bit happier.
We would like to maximize our efforts to provide food for this people with the funds collected through this campaign.
