Worldwide hunger is a devastating problem but you can do something to change that on 96five’s Take Away Hunger Day on Thursday 24th August 2023.
The number of people without enough food to eat is racing towards 1 billion around the world. Around 828 million people don’t have enough food to lead a healthy life – 150 million more since COVID – and children are the most vulnerable.
66 million primary-school-age children are hungry in the developing world, 23 million in Africa alone. Poor nutrition causes nearly 45% of deaths in children under five years old – every year that’s 3.1 million.
However, there is a solution.
On Thursday 24th August, 96five is proud to be partnering with Feed the Hungry for Take Away Hunger Day 2023.
For just $6, you can provide enough meals to feed a refugee child for a whole month. $60 feeds 10 hungry children for a month.
On Take Away Hunger Day, you are helping kids with the urgent meal they need with now and you’re helping them learn in school-based programs. Providing a meal at school every day means they don’t have to worry about their next meal anymore.
Children can now learn, laugh, dream and play. They get to be kids again. They also hear about a God who loves them and they find hope for the future.
It’s more than a meal, it’s a full life.
Together as a community, we’re hoping to feed 8,800 children in Uganda on Take Away Hunger Day 2023.
Give now to Take Away Hunger with a gift of $6 or more.
