The situation in India
40% of Indian children suffer from malnutrition. This statistic is all the more alarming when you consider that the country has the second-highest population worldwide. Despite a fast-growing economy, most children do not have access to safe drinking water and sanitation facilities, causing disease to spread rapidly. Children and youths are often forced to marry before adulthood and are exposed to exploitation. In addition, India is particularly prone to natural disasters.
