This year the focus for the 2015 40 Hour Famine is Bangladesh. We are supporting Bangladesh because of hunger. Did you know that one out of seventeen children won’t make it to their 5th birthday. This is because of the hunger needs in Bangladesh. We are raising money which will go towards feeding people in Bangladesh.
The rate of malnutrition in Bangladesh is nearly the highest in the world. Injustice is rife leaving children vulnerable to malnutrition and food insecurity. Nearly eight million children in Bangladesh are malnourished. The funds raised through this year’s famine will go towards establishing emergency feeding programmes, teaching families how to grow vegetables and improving access to health and nutrition services.
I am taking a stand for Bangladesh. Are you?
