The Face of Chronic Malnutrition

The “Faces of Hunger” campaign by UNICEF aims to raise awareness about the devastating effects of chronic malnutrition in Guatemala, where 50% of all children under the age of five suffer from this condition. In addition, an increasing number of children are being affected by acute malnutrition.

UNICEF recognizes that hunger takes many different forms, and is committed to fighting against this problem. The campaign message, “Hunger. You shouldn’t think about it. You should do something about it.” emphasizes the need for action to be taken to address the issue of malnutrition. The campaign will be visible on television, radio, and online through banners and posters.

The photographs for this project were taken by Daimon Xanthopoulos, and the film accompanying the campaign shows the impact that malnutrition has on communities and children. UNICEF is committed to providing both structural and immediate aid to those suffering from malnutrition, and is working tirelessly to eradicate this problem once and for all. With the help of the public, UNICEF can make a real difference in the lives of children and families affected by malnutrition in Guatemala. Join UNICEF in the fight against hunger and make a difference today.
