COVID-19 has caused a sharp escalation in rates of hunger around the world, deepening disruptions to already fragile food and healthcare systems.

Millions of families are struggling to find nutritious foods and basic healthcare.

As poverty and hunger surge, decades of global progress are being reversed, bringing many children and families to the brink of famine.

The long-term effects of this crisis will put an entire generation at risk and deprive countless children of their true potential. But with urgent action, we can help families build resilience and protect their own health.
