Hunger remains the No.1 cause of death in the world.There are 820 million chronically hungry people in the world. Million Indians survive on less than Rs. 20/- a day.Over 20 crore Indians will sleep hungry tonight.
Over 7000 Indians die of hunger every day and over 25 lakh Indians die of hunger every year.Despite substantial improvement in health since independence and a growth rate of 8 percent in recent years, under-nutrition remains a silent emergency in India, with almost 50 percent of Indian children underweight and more than 70 percent of the women and children with serious nutritional deficiencies as anemia.
