Lancet study released ahead of the 'Big If' rally in London on Saturday that's aiming to curb world hunger.
Malnutrition is responsible for nearly half of all deaths in children under five across the world according to a new report published in the Lancet.
Poor breastfeeding practices and deficiencies of vitamins and minerals also account for 100-million underweight children - mainly in Asia or Africa.
Tearfund supporter Joy Blundell from New Life Church in Lincoln has told Premier's Victoria Laurence it's the reason why she's going to the 'Big If' rally in London's Hyde over the weekend:
A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference
In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
