Nutritious foods in adequate amounts are essential for however.India,
with a population of over 1.3 billion, despite a phenomenal industrial and economic growth,it is unable to provide food to a large number of people.

According to FAO estimates in ‘The State of Food Security and 
Nutrition in the World, 2020 report, 189.2 million people are   undernourished in India. By this measure 14% of the population is undernourished in India. Also, 51.4% of women in reproductive age between 15 to 49 years are anaemic. Further  
according to the report 34.7% of the children aged under five in 
India are stunted (too short for their age), while 20% suffer from wasting, meaning their weight is too low for their height.Malnourished children have a higher risk of death from common childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, pneumonia, and malaria.  
The Global Hunger Index 2020 ranks India at 101 out of 116 
countries on the basis of three leading indicators -- prevalence of wasting and stunting in children under 5 years, under 5 child mortality rate, and the proportion of undernourished in the population.

According to FAO
Key facts about hunger in India
India is home to the largest undernourished population in the world
189.2 million people i.e. 14% of our population is undernourished 
20% of children under 5 are underweight
34.7% of children under 5 years of age are stunted
 51.4% women in the reproductive age (15-49 years) are anaemic

On the other hand According to FAO in India Nearly 40 per cent
of the food produced in India is wasted every year due to fragmented food systems and inefficient supply chains.And Covid  was a critical hit all the over the world and so for India, people lost their jobs which worsen the situation more.Therefore I Prerna Singh a volunteer at humari pehchan NGO has  started a campaignto eradicate extreme poverty and hunger. Our
goal is to provide the needy with resources so that at the very least they don't have to sleep hungry stomach.

We are hoping to raise fund to ensure that we can reach to every 
needy person . Please consider a gift of Rs.50 because there are people who are in need and your little donation can help us to help  
them.



Thank you!
