United Airlines and Rise Against Hunger India unite to end world hunger

Gurugram : United Airlines, the global partner of Rise Against Hunger India (RAHI), has joined hands with RAHI to pack 10,000 meals today, for street kids and orphans.  United Airlines has taken the initiative with Rise Against Hunger to package 2 million meals globally and this is their first initiative in India.

Around 60 United Airlines employees came together at DLF Cyber City office of United Airlines to host their first meal packaging volunteering event packaging 10,000 meals which will support street kids and children from vulnerable communities in Delhi.

Under nutrition is one of the key issues plaguing India today. It is estimated that about 25,000 children under the age of 18 live on the streets of Delhi.  According to the (FAO) Food and Agriculture Organization, around 195 million people go hungry daily in India with 1 in 4 children being malnourished. This in turn results in kids begging on the streets to earn their basic bread and butter.
