Over 30,000 Children Die Everyday
According to the most conservative United Nations statistics, over 16,000 children die every day due to hunger-related diseases before they reach five years of age, but this number could be as great as 40,000 people if you include those aged five and older. Statistics vary between the United Nations World Food Programme and UNICEF, but the fact remains: even one child is one too many!
