Basic Needs: Each year an estimated 15 million children die of hunger. World Children's Fund is on the front line of the fight against hunger. In the Horn of Africa, hunger is stalking millions of people. More than a third of all children in the region are now facing emergency levels of malnutrition. We fight hunger worldwide with both emergency food aid, on-going feeding programmes in slums and schools that serve impoverished children. In addition to food relief, WCF also meets basic needs by providing suffering children with clothing, shelter, school supplies & medical relief.
