Hunger remains the No.1 cause of death in the world. There are 820 million chronically hungry people in the world. Over 20 crore Indians sleep hungry every night. 10 million people die every year of chronic hunger and hunger-related diseases. 30% of newborn are of low birth weight, 56% of married women are anemic and 79% of children age 6-35 months are anemic. Despite substantial improvement in health since independence and a growth rate of 8 percent in recent years, under-nutrition remains a silent emergency in India, with almost 50 percent of Indian children underweight and more than 70 percent of the women and children with serious nutritional deficiencies as anemia.
 
Securing affordable and healthy meal is an everyday struggle for most of the homeless. Mission Heal is organizing free food distribution from various shelters run by them. Our programme focuses on generating awareness about malnutrition, precautions, methods of serving food and importance of washing hands.
