Malnutrition and diseases related to hunger cause about six in ten childhood deaths, or approximately 5 million per year in the world. In addition vitamin deficiencies or hidden hunger affects health, growth and development, and educational performance. Anemia, which can result in long-term diminished mental development affects up to 61% of children 6 months to 6 years old. As such, providing healthcare to an impoverished population involves more than prescribing medication.
