Child hunger - gyermekéhezés
About one billion people, 14 per cent of the world's population, are currently undernourished, a nice word for hungry. The current economic crisis, the continuing ineffectiveness or unwillingness of our "globalized" system to deal with hunger and climate change, and today's quickly rising oil prices due to Mideast conflict are fuelling not only higher, but also more unpredictable, food costs. Many staple foods have jumped in price over the past year: corn (75 per cent), wheat (85 per cent), sugar (77 per cent) and cooking oil (57 per cent).
