Walk the World Pilipinas

It may be hard to digest, and it may be hard to believe, but hunger is responsible for a third of all deaths in children under the age of five in the developing world, and that list includes the Philippines.  Interestingly, it only costs United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) ₱10 to provide a nutritious meal to a child at school!  And now, here’s our chance to lend a hand with WFP’s global awareness and fundraising event called “End Hunger: Walk the World.”
