‘NZ Aid agencies warn Coronavirus and hunger will adversely impact poor children’

New Zealand: Thirteen NZ aid organisations are warning that children in low-income countries will be the most affected by the global pandemic and hunger, and they are encouraging Kiwis to help resource their global neighbours to deal effectively with the situation. A report by the UN on The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, estimates that between 778 to 828 million people may go hungry this year. Children are the most dependent and vulnerable in any society, particularly those from low-income households, with no social welfare safety nets or access to advaced healthcare systems.
