Hunger - Life Mu Ghetto

There’s enough on this planet for everyone’s needs but not for everyone’s greed.

Mahatma Gandhi
  • 38% of children under the age of five suffer from chronic hunger and are not growing as they should.  
  • Vulnerable children and families often have no governmental safety net to help them when they don't have a home or enough money for food. Many turn to non-governmental organisations for support at such critical times.
  • Many Ugandan children suffer from malnutrition. The country’s northeastern region is very arid and the most affected. There, the land is too dry to produce an adequate amount of food; consequently, food shortages are a regular problem. In 2010, around 40% of children under the age of 5 suffered from dietary shortcomings.

  • Malnutrition among children has a serious impact on their health. Some die from it, while others exhibit deficiencies that can lead to any number of diseases. Lack of nourishment can have harmful effects that are sometimes felt for the entire duration of one’s life.
