Haiti tops the 20 countries where more than 1 in 4 people go hungry – Gulftoday.ae


More than 1 in 4 people go hungry in 20 countries around the world, a new report by the UN has revealed.

The annual hunger report by the body found that 795 million people globally suffer from malnutrition.

This represents an improvement from figures 25 years ago when a billion people were malnourished. Progress was most notable in Latin America, the Caribbean, East Asia, Southeast and Central Asia.

However, despite welcoming an overall decrease in cases of malnutrition, the report noted that many African countries continue to face food crises. via Gulftoday.ae
