Save Children in Accra from Malnutrition and
One child is estimated to die of hunger every four seconds in Accra, Ghana. Nearly forty-five
million people in thirty-seven countries in Africa are anticipated to have so little to eat that they’ll
be severely malnourished, facing starvation or at risk of death.
Each year, over three million children die from hunger-related causes. But we can save them!

Nutrition during childhood forms children in ways that last a lifetime. The severe impacts of
malnutrition—from impaired thinking and sickness to stunted growth—affect not just them but
their families and their communities.
Food can certainly transform the course of a child’s future.
Everybody has already seen the consequence when you don’t act or delay! That’s especially

The opportunity to avert widespread
