"The Global Food Crisis is the first time in human history that a food crisis has been brought on by so many different causes, from around the world, that are simultaneously affecting peoples ability to get food.
There are over 900 million chronically hungry people around the world, and approximately 1.4 billion live in extreme poverty.
Children and families in 33 countries are suffering from the effects of the Global Food Crisis.
Malnourished children are more likely to die from ordinary illnesses like diarrhoea, malaria, tuberculosis and respiratory disease.
25,000 children die from hunger and preventable diseases every day.
Children are under threat of starvation and are most vulnerable when times get tough. The Global Food Crisis denies children their basic right to adequate food and nutrition."
