One person is estimated to be dying of hunger every four seconds globally.
According to warnings by over 200 NGOs, a decisive international action to end the spiraling global hunger crisis is needed.
In an open letter addressing world leaders gathering in New York for the United Nations General Assembly, 238 organisations from 75 countries, including Oxfam, Save the Children and Plan International expressed outrage at skyrocketing hunger levels.
Pointing out that as many as 19,700 people are estimated to be dying of hunger every day, the NGOs said that this translates to one person dying of hunger every four seconds.
