When a child can’t eat, hunger destroys their world: It puts their lives at risk. It drains their energy and silences play. It consumes their curiosity and crushes learning. It grinds down joy and turns their dreams to dust.
"This is a truly global catastrophe. Right now, hunger is eating away at the childhoods of 1 in 5 children across the world." – Gabriella Waaijman, Humanitarian Director, Save the Children International
Just like baby Aaden* and his 10-year-old sister Ladan,* children’s lives and futures are at risk from hunger.
As conflict affects places like Somalia and now Gaza, more children like Aaden and Ladan are growing desperately hungry and are paying the heaviest price for the ongoing violence. If weapons don’t kill children, without essential supplies, hunger will.
