Fighting child hunger in Africa.

16 02 2021 | 10:43


Children are particularly affected by the hunger crisis in Africa. There are far too many starving kids in Africa, every single affected kid is one too much. 3.2 million children under the age of 5 die each year in sub-Saharan Africa - that's about half of the world's deaths in this age group.

This great initiative is put up by four young and inspiring girls,
Leah from Africa, (
Licypriya from Asia ( and
Lily from Europe (
Alexandria from America (

Malnutrition threatens to destroy a generation of children in Uganda. More than one third of all young children – 2.4 million – are stunted. The damage caused by stunting is irreversible.

Between 2013 and 2015, it is estimated that more than 500,000 young Ugandan children died. Of these deaths, nearly half were associated with undernutrition. Undernutrition is responsible for four in 10 deaths of children under five.

Hunger linked to COVID-19 could kill more people than the virus itself according to Oxfam. Covid-19 will be worsening a situation that has been created by the climate crisis.
While many children will be enjoying heavy meals during this year’s Christmas, millions of children in Africa will be starving.

Climate activists from Netherlands, India and Uganda (Lilly, Licy and Leah) have joined hands to fight hunger in Africa. According to the trio, no child deserves to go hungry .
