 take a hunger quiz and make a free contribution to help hungry people

 


This part of the Hunger Notes website enables you to learn make a free (to you) contribution to assist hungry people. While we usually feature a hunger quiz, this time we just want you to watch an audio slide show on hunger in India. This is an excellent short introduction to hunger in children in India and generally. You will see what malnourished children look like. The video also helps you to understand basic ways in which malnutrition affects children including reduced weight, height and impaired ability to think, as well as the very high proportion (2/3s) of children in India that suffer from malnutrition.  When you view this three-minute  video,  Hunger Notes will make a donation to assist people in crisis--see below for donation specifics.
