Video – The Republic Of Hunger: every third malnourished child in the world is from India

In Under-nutrition on August 16, 2012 at 6:53 am

From AlJazeera web site:

“More than 40 per cent of India’s 61 million children are malnourished, prompting the prime minister to declare the problem a “national shame”.

“A recent report reveals that levels are twice that of sub-Saharan Africa, making every third malnourished child in the world an Indian.

“India has one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and runs one of the largest child feeding programmes.

“But critics say only a fraction of aid reaches the needy.”

    • Ciao Fausta, grazie per il tuo commento. Il tuo commento e’ giusto: i programmi non bastano. Mi verrebbe da chiedere: cosa fare allora? Ma ancora di piu’ mi viene da chiedere: a chi farla questa ultima domanda? Guarda l’ultimo blog post che ho messo perche’ e’ MOLTO pertinente al tuo commento. Un caro abbraccione. Fil 🙂
