Our Theme for this year’s 2018 Global malnutrition campaign is SKIP ONE FEED ONE.
With malnutrition being the underlying cause of the death of 2.6 million children each year – one-third of the global total, of children’s deaths; we are urging everyone to do something about it by skipping that daily, monthly or yearly routine, like a family vacation, shopping, cable subscription, Salon treat, movie trip, date night, coffee stops and donating its monetary value to feed one child.
