Rally for hungry children

Date Published: 

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.
