795 million, around 1 in 9, of the world’s population are undernourished and live on less than £1 a day. Hunger kills more people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

Every 3.6 seconds, a child dies due to hunger and 805 million people are still living with chronic persistent hunger on a daily basis.

Striving Against Starvation – the annual Beta Charitable Trust food parcel programme – runs from May to July, and aims to provide aid to the poorest and most deprived in the United Kingdom as well as in hard-to-reach areas of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Benin, Chad, Guinea-Bissau, India, Kenya, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Tanzania and Yemen. It’s a big project, and it’s one we can’t carry out without your help.

A typical food parcel includes oil, rice, wheat, flour, sugar, tea etc. For just £6 you can provide a family of four with a food parcel for 1 week. That's just 86p for a daily substantial meal for a family of four! 

For more details and information about the food parcel programme, take a peek at the below video.
