Leaving u, my dear friends

Do u remember the question that I asked u all guys? So many people in the world, we live so far from each other. I live in Cambodia and u live in India, Indonesia, Philliphine, Srilanka, Tanzania, China, Bangladesh, Korea...why did I meet u? why I didn't meet others? I think this is God's plan. He planed us to meet and to be friends each other and I thank God to give me good friends like u.

Through the years we have studied together in GNU, we had so much fun, joy, tears, laughter, sad. u no? I can learn alot from you as different background, traditional and culture.

When I look back all the events that we did together, It is hard for me to say goodbye to all handsome girls and beautiful guys but we are different nations and reponsibilities and so many thing are waiting for me and u to do. However,I hope God will bless u and me to meet someday at somewhere else. I will keep and lock all our memories in my heart forever.

May God be with u and bless u to be healthy and successfull in your research and study. and please keep praying for me and our mission in Cambodia.
I am waiting for your visiting to my country.

With love and care.

Did U Know?

To be healthy and active, we must have food in adequate quantity, quality and variety to meet our energy and nutrient requirements.Without adequate nutrition,children cannot develop their potential to the fullest, and adults will experience difficulty in maintaining or expanding theirs.

Not everyone has adequate access to the food they need, and this has led to large-scale hunger and malnutrition in the world. More than 840 million people today are chronically undernourished and unable to obtain sufficient food to meet even minimum energy needs.

Approximately 200 million children under five years of age suffer from acute or chronic symptoms of malnutrition; during seasonal foodshortages, and in times of famine and social unrest, this number increases. According to some estimates, malnutrition is an important factor among the nearly 13 million children under five who die every year from preventable diseases and infections, such as measles, diarrhoea, malaria and pneumonia, or from some
combination of these.The overwhelming majority of the undernourished are in developing countries, which account for 95% (798 million) of the undernorished; 34 million people in countries in transition and 10 million in industrialized countries are estimated to be undernourished. At the regional level, Asia and the Pacific account for three-fifths (505 million) of the worlds undernourished; India alone has 214 million undernourished people. Almost onequarter (198 million) of the undernourished are in Sub-Saharan Africa, which is also the region with the highest proportion of its population undernourished.

What are the main causes of hunger?
Hunger and malnutrition are caused by many factors, but the primary cause of hunger is poverty. Education, food production and availability, access to food, natural disasters, war, are also major influencing factors.

Is it possible to have a world free from hunger?
It is not because of a lack of food globally that there is hunger in world, but because of a lack of effective and timely action to ensure everyone's right to adequate food. With sufficient political will and adequate resources, and the active involvement of all members of society, we can make
significant steps forward to achieving a world free from hunger and malnutrition.
