Skip-A-Meal

The pandemic over the past two years, together with the extreme climate events caused by global warming, are contributing to one of the worst food crises in decades. In recent years, East Africa has been persistently affected by disasters like locusts, drought and floods, pushing more than seven million people to the very edge of starvation. Besides suffering from malnutrition, many starving children are also becoming victims of child labour and child marriage to support their families' livelihoods.

The funds raised from this year's 'Skip-A-Meal' will support World Vision to provide food and livelihoods assistance for impoverished children, families and communities in South Sudan and Somalia. Join now to extend a helping hand and send hope to starving children!


Wild Fruits: Their Only Meal

Last year, many children and families in South Sudan lived in displacement due to floods and conflict. Among them were five-year-old Adut (right) and her family who are currently living in a refugee settlement.

Every day, Adut’s father would go to look for wild fruits in the forest to feed the family. These fruits that Adut and her mother are cracking serve as the only meal of the day for the family. “My baby’s [Adut’s brother] health is improving thanks to the Plumpy’Nut that World Vision gives us regularly, but due to the lack of sufficient food, I am afraid his situation might deteriorate again,” says Adut’s mother. Please share hope with starving children by supporting Skip-A-Meal!
