Hunger is still the world’s top health risk—it kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. IRUSA is working tirelessly so people never have to live in fear of #foodinsecurity. This #WorldFoodDay we stand with millions of others who contribute to one of the most critical issues we face. It is a problem we all can help solve. We believe it can be solved in our lifetime. Have a listen and read of some of our past work addressing the crisis of #foodinsecurity.
More than 820 MILLION of our sisters and brothers around the world suffer in excruciating hunger every day. And hunger doesn’t discriminate: People in all parts of the world are literally starving to death, from sub-Saharan Africa, where one in four is malnourished, to the United States, where one in nine Americans are food insecure.
Food aid is the largest sector of Islamic Relief USA’s humanitarian aid. Our food aid programs range from worldwide distribution during the Ramadan and Qurbani seasons; to mobilized deliveries in the wake of disasters; to food pantries that provide easy access to quality food. Across the globe, we’re working hard to make sure that our neighbors have enough to eat.
Here’s just a sampling of our recent efforts to fight hunger:
