Where Hunger Exists
There are 795 million chronically hungry people in the world. Where do they live?
*Why don't these numbers add up to 795? Because the small remaining amount of hungry people live in the developed world - in countries like Canada and the U.S.
The story behind the numbers
- Asia has the highest number of hungry people ... but also has the biggest population
- Sub-Saharan Africa has the highest percentage of hungry people.
- There are over 200 million fewer hungry people in developing countries today than there were in the early 1900s
