Happy birthday! We are throwing you a party.
After World War II, the International Community matured enough to start thinking about more important things than fighting wars.
Important things – such as food for example.
So on the 16th of October 1945, the United Nations created a Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
This may sound as interesting as the number of sheep per capita in Australia, but it’s important as this was when you got your birth certificate.
Right now some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. Think of it this way – if Australia represented the entire world, every 9th person would be hungry.
Poor nutrition causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five – 3.1 million children each year. 66 million primary school-age children attend classes hungry across the developing world, with 23 million in Africa alone.
