Save a Child

Lack of good nutrition is called malnutrition. To save a child with malnutrition is just a one-time donation of $45 (Facts and Statistics). That money would go towards getting proper treatment with vitamins, minerals, and food. There are several stages of malnutrition. Thirty-four million children suffer from severe acute malnutrition which is very dangerous and can be fatal. In developing countries a third of all deaths in children under age five occur because of under nutrition ("Hunger"). One million children under the age of five die year due to poor nutrition ("Hunger"). Save a child today.

Just $1 can make 1 Meal ("Hunger Facts"). It's Easy.
