Can you imagine going to bed hungry every night or not knowing where your next meal will come from? Hungry children can’t concentrate in school and they often lose their desire to play and learn. Hungry mothers are often too weak to nurse their children. Hunger also weakens the immune system and makes people very vulnerable to disease.
HUNGER KNOWS NO BORDERS
These are some alarming statistics that were found on the United Nations World Food Programme website–
- Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.
- The vast majority of the world’s hungry live in developing countries, where 12.9% of the population is undernourished.
- Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five- 3.1 million children each year.
SEVEN GIVES BACK
SEVEN chapters across the world will be embarking on a journey of collecting cans across the world to help bring awareness and help those in need in our local areas. Every SEVEN chapter has picked an organization that needs help. Some of these organizations are homeless shelters, domestic abuse shelters and food banks. From Nov, 2nd through Nov. 20th please bring all donations to a local SEVEN chapter. If there isn’t as local chapter in your neighborhood please make a donation to an organization of your choice. Together we can all make a difference.
And one little added BONUS- Bring a canned good item or two or three and attend a SEVEN networking meeting for FREE during November. How cool is that?! It is a win-win for all!!
