Reform the food aid system

Nutrition is an important part of health. People all over the world starve without enough food. But even more aren't getting enough nutrition. Unfortunately, some of these individuals are recipients of humanitarian food aid - and the charity is being wasted, not contributing to increasing their health because of the lack of nutrients in the food they receive.

Doctors without borders have launched Starved for Attention to bring awareness, and change, to the limitations and problems in humanitarian food aid programs. They also have a traveling exhibit - 195 million stories of malnutrition.

What are the consequences of malnutrition? Approximately half thedeaths among children aged 0 to 4 years in developing countries.
