Millennium Development Goals: Progress?
A variety of world leaders recently met in New York City to discuss progress to the Millennium Development Goals, a series of goals agreed to by members of the United Nations in 2000 that are designed to end poverty, its causes, and symptoms by 2015.
While there has been some progress overall, hunger and poverty, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, remain largely unchanged. Discussion among United Nations’ members at the summit looked to the reasons why so many people needlessly suffer: funding shortages, a lack of political will, and political unrest and instability in many African nations.
While many of these obstacles pose a significant threat to a hunger-free world, MANA has a plan: We seek to reduce severe acute malnutrition by developing and providing solutions to address the root causes of malnutrition and its devastating effects. No debate, red tape, or worldwide summits are necessary to bring lifesaving MANA into the hands of mothers and their children.
