It is ‘a terrible indictment of the world in 2007′ that 18,000 children die daily due to hunger and malnutrition, and 850 million people go to bed every night with empty stomachs, the head of the UN food agency, James Morris said.

He called for students and young people, faith-based groups, the business community as well as governments to join hands in a global movement to alleviate and eliminate hunger - especially among children. Interestingly, the largest number of malnourished children is in India - more than 100 million - followed by nearly 40 million in China. Though, Morris is very hopeful that India and China are pretty focused on this issue and are making great progress.

On the other hand, there are probably 100 million hungry children in the rest of Asia, another 100 million in Africa where countries have fewer resources to help, and 30 million in Latin America.
