The link is also available on the Stop Hunger Now! website http://www.stophungernow.org/ and is a gift to the churches so that in preparing to welcome the Christ Child, we consider the needs of God’s children here on earth. Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of the deaths in children under age five – 3.1 million children each year. Additionally, nearly 50 percent of people living in extreme poverty are 18 years old or younger. While 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone. As we live into our quadrennial theme of ‘Generosity in All Seasons’, let us remember the children who suffer from lack of plentiful, nutritious food.
Stop Hunger Now! is Advance number 982795.
