Poverty and hunger have been a universal experience and a growing peril to humankind. Hunger at a global scale is one of the main problems that a large number of the global population faces currently. Many factors contribute to world hunger as they are insufficient economic systems, misinformation, and climate changes, among many other things. Still, the main excruciating factor is poverty as many around the world cannot afford to eat a single meal a day due to poverty. When we celebrate World Food Day on October 16th we have to ponder on the relevance of hunger and poverty around us. Just because we are not directly affected by poverty and hunger does not mean people around us are not affected by it either. Many children suffer from malnutrition and hunger in India. Let us do our part to make a change through Love One More.
Hunger and malnutrition are closely associated in Indian scenario especially in rural India. The Global Study revealed that 42% of children in India are underweight and 58% of children are stunted by two years of age. Furthermore, hunger and malnutrition have a separate gender dimension and are prevalent more among the women and mothers.
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one – Mother Teresa
Love One More has supported women and children and has helped many poorer communities in India to come out of this cycle of poverty by giving them 3 nutritious meals a day and helping women find jobs and children complete school.
It is heartening to see smiling happy faces at Love One More when they are fed three nutritious meals a day. For many, even a single meal at their home is a distant dream. We have noticed these children being more active, happy and putting on weight in the first week of joining our children’s home. This transition that we see right in front of our eyes fills each one who associates with Love One More with immense joy and happiness. You can also be part of this joy by sponsoring a child or contributing to our work in uplifting the poorer communities.
