Story

This World Hunger Day, we invite you to reflect on the profound impact of the mothers in our lives. Tell us why they are important to you and then honour these special women by making a donation in their name to help fight hunger worldwide. Your contribution not only celebrates their impact but also helps women lead their communities towards a better future.

Join us in thanking these incredible mothers and invest in a world without hunger.

Around the world, women and children are facing malnutrition due to war, famine, climate change and more. Over 1 billion adolescent girls and women suffer from malnutrition today. The effects are passed down from mother to child. Malnourished mothers give birth to malnourished babies. These children suffer irreversible impacts on their brain development and futures.

It creates a cycle of chronic hunger.

The challenge extends well beyond conflict zones. Every country in the world is affected by malnutrition. It has developmental, economic, social and medical impacts for individuals and their families, for communities and for countries.

Women and children, particularly those living in poverty, are most vulnerable to malnutrition. When nutritious food is scarce, families must make hard choices. Girls are fed last and least. Mothers eat after the rest of their family is fed.

In many places around the world, to reduce the burden on their families, girls are married at a young age. They are not fully developed and they begin having babies early. Malnourished girls give birth to malnourished babies. Malnourished babies face delayed development cognitively and physically. These delays prevent them from reaching their full potential.

Thankfully there are many proven interventions and organizations taking action to break this cycle of malnutrition.

The heart of this work is ensuring that mothers have access to information and nutritious foods for themselves and their babies.
