How many people go hungry
There are 257 million people in Africa – poor infants, children, families, and people in vulnerable situations – that still go to bed on an empty stomach each night. This is unsustainable, it is also completely unnecessary.
Why should you care
Lack of access to sufficient food is truly devastating to children, families, and entire communities across Africa. Extreme hunger remains a barrier to sustainable development and creates a trap from which people cannot easily escape. Hunger means less productive individuals, who are more prone to disease and thus often unable to earn more and improve their livelihoods.
Why Our Work Matters

The African Union Malabo Declaration and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 2 call for ending hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition, and promoting sustainable food systems by 2025 and 2030 respectively, and this is a priority of Bread of Life International.
