The Impact Of Food Scarcity

Following reports that two children died after eating scraps from a rubbish bin in Langkawi, we take a look at how widespread the issue of food scarcity is and how it impacts children in underserved communities. Then, we discuss what steps are being taken to address the issue and what more we should be doing.
