HARDSHIP IN AFRICA HAS LEAD TO HUNGER AND POVERTY

Is really saddening to realize that though poverty in Africa has reduced unlike in the 70s, but the number of poor people are increasing.

What’s more painful is that: ( United Nation, hunger statistics for Africa, 2015).


* Twelve Africans die of hunger every minute.

* 1 in 10 infants die within their first 12months due to prevailing effects of poverty.

* Every year 6 million children die before their 5th birthday.

* 10 Million Africans struggle to live.

This is shocking because despite the abounding natural resources that the continent is blessed with & the cash that exchange hands within the upper class.

 Before you waste that money (no matter how small) remember a child might not witness his first BIRTHDAY & 12 person is going to die in the next 60 seconds.

The food you throw away can be an answer to someone’s prayer.
