Stark warning by the UN World Food Programme
"Red Alert - A Global Food Crisis Like No Other
"Up to 828 million people went hungry in 2021 (...), an increase of 46 million on the previous year and an increase of 150 million people since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. (...) A staggering 50 million people in 45 countries are just one step from famine," said WFP Executive Director David Beasley. "There is a real danger these numbers will climb even higher in the months ahead.”
