Thriving Mothers. Thriving World. Introducing the World Hunger Day 2024 Campaign

March 28, 2024

With the rising cost of living, conflict and climate change, malnutrition is on the rise, particularly for women and girls. The challenge extends to every country in the world—42% of people globally cannot afford a healthy diet. 

The effects of malnutrition are passed down from mother to child. Malnourished mothers give birth to malnourished babies. These children suffer irreversible impacts on their brain development and futures. It creates a cycle of chronic hunger. 

The good news: We can end malnutrition. Investing in the nutrition of mothers, mothers-to-be and their children breaks the cycle and creates a world where we can all thrive. 

That’s why for this year’s World Hunger Day, we are spearheading the “Thriving Mothers. Thriving World.” campaign. This is a global moment to raise awareness about the pervasive issue of malnutrition and to support communities as they break the cycle of hunger. 

“We must address malnutrition before we can achieve any of the other Sustainable Development Goals. An investment in preventing malnutrition is not just an investment for the moment –  it is truly an investment in a future thriving world,” said Grace Chikowi, Country Leader, The Hunger Project-Malawi, said in a recent media briefing that launched the World Hunger Day 2024 campaign.
