30,000 people die everyday from starvation
150 million street children world wide
842 million people across the world are hungry
798 million people in the developing world are undernourished
Half the world -- nearly three billion people -- live on less than 2 dollars a day.
The developing world now spends $13 on debt repayment for every $1 it receives in grants.

Aaron Jackson is the founder of this organization. He said some very interesting things tonight on the Larry King show. Like the fact that you can deworm 2,000 in Haiti with $100. It´s possible to donate to their cause on their website.
