Out of every4 children in India, onedoes not have access to nutritional food on a daily basis. 200 million children suffer the effects of malnutrition and are underweight that halts their growth. 3.5 million children younger than 5 years die from malnutrition every year.The impact of malnutrition during a child’s first 1000 days is irreversible.
The biggest reason for hunger is poverty. Children donot have enough to eat, at the same time,they don’t have access to clean water, medical care or education. Children’s growth can be permanently stunted by lack of food and nutrition. They face not just hunger and diseases but even some die. It's not their fault, but it's their reality. We have seen the face of hunger in Delhi’ Slums, and other places around the Country.
