Swollen, protruding bellies. Thinning, brittle hair. Knobby knees and alarmingly thin limbs.
No parent would ever want their child to be described this way.
But for children around the world who are starving, the physical effects of malnutrition are all too real. Without food, their frail bodies are simply wasting away.
But you can help.
All it takes is $120 for you to provide enough food for a child to survive his first 1,000 days of life — enough food to last him until May 2020.
Why 1,000 days? Because the first three years of a child’s life are most critical to his or her growth and overall health.
They are also the years when a child is most susceptible to death due to famine, drought, and malnutrition. Those who survive often suffer from chronic health issues the rest of their lives.
It’s estimated that nearly 800 million people around the world suffer from hunger. And in sub-Saharan Africa, the growing hunger crisis threatens the lives of more than 20 million people.
Without your gift of $120, a child may not live to see his third birthday. You may never have the chance to meet him face-to-face, but you have the opportunity now to save his life.
Please give generously today on behalf of a child who is starving!
