Every four seconds a person in the world dies of hunger. The private development organizations gave such terrible information. More than two hundred non-governmental development organizations (NGOs) have called on the United Nations to be vigilant in dealing with the food crisis in the world.

238 human development NGOs from 75 countries published an open letter to the attention of world leaders on Tuesday (September 20) ahead of the United Nations General Assembly session in New York, USA. It also includes international organizations like Oxfam, Save the Children, Plan International. Organizations have expressed outrage as world hunger is skyrocketing.

The organizations said in a statement that 34.5 million people in the world are struggling with extreme hunger. This number is more than double compared to 2019.

They say, ‘There will never be another famine in the 21st century, despite promises by world leaders, Somalia is once again in fear. 50 million people in 45 countries around the world are on the brink of starvation’.

NGOs also say that 19,700 people die every day due to extreme hunger in the world. As such, one person dies every four seconds in the world.

The statement was signed by Mohanna Ahmed Ali Al-Jabali on behalf of the Yemen Family Care Association. He said, ‘Agriculture has been modernized all over the world. Modern technology of crop production and harvesting is being used. Yet in the 21st century we are suffering from food shortages. We have to talk about the famine situation. It’s sad’.

According to NGOs, the impact of the corona pandemic, the long-term war between Ukraine and Russia, together with poverty, social injustice, gender inequality, conflict, climate change and economic crises, rising food prices, have all exacerbated the global hunger crisis.
