The Plight of Myanmar

In the country of Myanmar 31% of children are malnourished. In some areas, 19.5% of Myanmar citizens suffer from acute malnutrition, which essentially means that 19.5% of the population is starving to death.

Recently I was fortunate to be a part of a collaborative effort to research the cause of this widespread hunger in the war ravished country of Myanmar.  Below is a video detailing the horrors of acute malnutrion, and if you are interested in just what is causing so many citizens of Myanmar to go to bed hungry at night visit our blog with the full and compiled report at http://myanmarhunger.wordpress.com/.
