Yes, there is hunger in the world.

According to the World Food Program, 828 million people in the world do not have enough food to eat. This number has been steadily increasing in recent years, due to a number of factors including conflict, climate change, and the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hunger has a devastating impact on people’s lives. It leads to malnutrition, illness, and death. It can also prevent children from going to school and adults from working. Hunger is a major obstacle to development and progress.

Kwashiorkor is a severe form of malnutrition that is caused by a lack of protein in the diet. It is most common in children, especially in developing countries with high levels of poverty and food insecurity. Kwashiorkor can be fatal if it is not treated. Treatment usually involves giving the child a diet that is high in protein and other nutrients.

Marasmus is a disease caused by a lack of calories and protein in the diet. It is most common in children, but can also affect adults.

What can be done? There are a number of things that can be done to address hunger.

Governments can provide food assistance to those in need. They can also invest in agriculture and rural development to increase food production.

Individuals can also donate to food charities or volunteer their time to help those who are hungry.

Ending hunger is a complex challenge, but it is possible to mitigate it. With the right policies and actions, we can create a world where everyone has enough to eat.
