One in three people suffer from some form of malnutrition in the world

International World Food Day

On 16 October 1945, 42 countries met in Quebec to create the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). Since that day, every year the organization celebrates the World Food Day to raise awareness about hunger in the world and remember the need to ensure food security for all.

We don’t want to miss the opportunity to show our commitment to this fight, which affects 2,500 million people worldwide, and is that 1 in 3 people suffer from one form of malnutrition, ranging from the hunger to obesity.

But this doesn’t end here, 793 million suffer chronic hunger and don’t have enough food. These frightening figures contrast with the nearly 1.900 million people who are overweight; the other side of the coin which causes 3.2 million deaths each year.

From Worldcoo we try to encourage all projects that seek to end this problem that contributes to the premature death of mothers, children, poor physical development and brain and increasing chronic diseases.

One of them is “Overcoming malnutrition in Ethiopia,” sponsored by UNHCR / ACNUR and that we launched together with PromoFarma.  Thanks to the donations that users are doing, the NGO will ensure the nutritional well-being of 11,323 children under 5 years as refugees in this country, which hosts more displaced persons in Africa.You can remember it HERE.

Today, we encourage you also help spread the cause and raise awareness.

Dining scholarships for 2 students at social risk

-WORLDCOO REPORT-

As you know, one of our commitments is to show with totally transparency  the progress of each of the projects we collaborate.  In this sense, today we present you the final report of the Family Aid program in Spain (promoted by “Action Aid”) and which the users of Zacaris, the main online shop where customers can buy any kind of shoe, were involved.

Thanks to their collaboration, 2 students that are living in a low-income household, will have the chance to have a guaranteed annual scholar lunchroom. Thank you so much!

#NewProject

In his last project, the users of MeQuedoUno collected more than 3.000€ in order to help Intermon Oxfam to distribute cereals, legumes, salt and oil to 200 families in South Sudan, where OCHA estimates that up to 7 million South Sudanese people are at risk of severe food insecurity. You can remember the project HERE.

With his new challenge, they will help SOS Children, an international organisation, to help children, founded in 1949 in Imst (Austria), with presence in 134 countries.

Because of the economic and social situation experienced by Spain during the last years, many families have been seriously harmed, negatively affecting all members of it, especially the youngest ones.

In the 15 day care centers of SOS Children’s Villages in Spain, a snack is offered every evening to children in order to guarantee quality food while also working hygiene and health issues.

Thanks to the collaboration of MeQuedoUno, 90 children will receive a daily snack in SOS Children’s Villages day care centers during school year.

You can follow the project HERE.
