Food for Orphans

I found a map showing hunger statistics worldwide.  The map was listed on the Food for Orphans website.  It is very eye-opening.

Click here to view the map.

Some good information from their website regarding orphans and hunger:

Today there are more than 143 million orphans in the world; and every two seconds another child becomes an orphan.

  • 42,000 new orphans every day
  • 400,000 orphans die every year due to malnutrition
  • 70% say that food is their greatest need
  • 60 million orphans go to bed hungry
Sixty million orphans cry themselves to sleep every night with pain in their empty bellies ... alone, scared, and hungry.

lack of food is the orphan's biggest problem. Every 90 seconds, another orphan dies from malnutrition.

The mission of Food for Orphans is to make sure that as many orphans as possible receive at least one nutritious meal per day.
