This year marks the tenth year since the start of the awareness of hunger around the globe. Statistics state that 10% of people living in the world feel the negative effects of famine; a large number of this percentage comes from African countries like Somalia, Ethiopia, etc. This holiday highlights the reasons for hunger, how to put an end to it, and people actively fighting to ensure food circulation in different regions.
World Hunger Day this year falls on the 28th of May, and to celebrate the occasion, we would like to spotlight some remarkable organizations in Nigeria that are preventing hunger and how they do it.
Our all-time favorite is Feed The Kids Initiative, a non-governmental organization that is working to develop and empower children by providing nutritional meals, snacks, liquids, and value in order to ensure the beneficiaries have a sustainable future by eliminating hunger. They do this by establishing local canteens that enable women in the community to work and provide food for children around. Feed The Kids is operating in over 3 communities in Nigeria. We love to see it.
Second on the list is Lagos Food Bank, a nutrition-focused initiative committed to fighting hunger, reducing food waste, and solving the problem of malnutrition for local and grassroots communities through the donation of cash, raw food, and other consumable produce. Lagos Food Bank also has an initiative that ensures nutrition and food security among pregnant women and their infants. We are rooting for them.
Last but not least, Food Clique Support Initiative is a hunger relief working to end hunger in Nigeria through the distribution of perishable and nonperishable food items to people struggling with hunger. We love to see it.
Happy World Hunger Day.
Help eradicate hunger by giving to any of the local community projects.
