Rally for hungry children

Published on 10 June 2009

Some 20 million children go to school on an empty stomach every day, according to the World Food Programme (WFP) which, together with a media production house, brought out a rally to focus on the fact recently. The purpose, ostensibly, was to mobilize public opinion and inspire concerted action from all quarters to end child hunger. Worldwide, hunger-related child mortality is one in every six seconds, says WFP, and for Bangladesh it is two children every hour.
