Starving African Orphan Children Need A Sponsor Or Charity Donation To Prevent Malnutrition, Disease And Death

     Starving African children that are orphans and have disease need you to donate or sponsor them today to prevent malnutrition and death. Every day, 16,000 children die from hunger related causes or disease. That’s one child every 5 seconds. Two children have just died since you started reading this. If you have a heart and are concerned about world hunger and feeding children in Africa and other 3rd world nations with a donation through charity, then watch the video below. Please be advised that the images are graphic and can be disturbing.

Today, there are approximately 6.7 billion people in the world–963 million of those people are hungry. The U.S. is one of 65 countries considered “high income” that makes up about 1/6th of the worlds population. The other 5/6ths live in low and lower middle income countries such as Kenya, Zimbabwe and other African and south Asian nations. Those other 5/6ths of the world earn less than $4000 a year. About 1/5th of those earn less than $500 a year. This lack of income direct effects food resources, hunger, malnutrition, disease and death.

Many children are homeless or orphans of families where one or both parents died of hiv or aids. Lack of income or money makes gathering food a daily struggle just to survive and stay alive. Since so much time is spent gathering food, there is less time to work to create an income. Their hunger also makes them weak and therefore its harder for them to work or gather food.

Although the world is 17% more efficient at producing food per person than it was 30 years ago, even though world population has grown by 70%, many children do not have access to those resources of the rest of the world. In other words, we have the resources and technology to feed everyone, it just isn’t getting done.

Most alarming, the people most at risk for undernourishment, malnutrition and starvation are pregnant women, women who are nursing their infants, and children. Won’t you take action today to help prevent the malnutrition and disease that cause starvation and either donate or sponsor a child to stop hunger and help feed the children.

  1. I appricate this display and documentation although I find it very hard to watch. I refuse to turn a blind eye, just because I have everything I need. If every able bodied person did just one thing to help in this world, it would be a better place.
    A picture is worth a thousand words. Words will not persuade people to move or change, and if this display does not, then I have no hope for the world.
    For whoever put this out thank you for your bravery.

  3. It is heartbreaking — however, each person can make a difference. One small way is on Facebook.

    Join the Gene Smart Wellness fanclub; after Gene Smart gains 100,000 members, they will fund the creation of a house in Masoyi, South Africa for an orphan family.

  4. Hi All,
    I am also working on a nutritional gel that is more cost-effective than Plumpy’Nut and would improve upon some of the negative consequences of the top competitors to combat malnutrition. My product would serve both in preventative cases and emergency response situations. Vote here for the project entitled “Fight Against Child and Maternal Malnutrition” under the “Global Health/AIDS” category in the Dell Social Innovation Competition! http://tinyurl.com/stopmalnutrition
