In 2015, approximately 2,600,000 children under the age of 5 died from malnutrition linked causes. Like polio, hunger and malnutrition is preventable. Like polio, Food Plant Solutions needs extensive partnerships. Like polio, a long-term commitment is needed.

We are calling on all Rotarians to follow ‘End Polio Now’ with ‘End Malnutrition NOW’  Please contact us at info@foodplantsolutions.org to became part of ‘End Malnutrition NOW’

Content Item - Tourism in Cambodia making a world of difference

The legacy left by Cambodia’s Khmer Rouge is tragic. Since Pol Pot’s regime fell, Cambodia's population has grown to 15 million, of which 85 per cent are uneducated, struggling farmers. Today, only a third of children finish school. There is no social welfare system. Nine in 10 people do not have clean water. Cholera, typhoid fever, malaria and dengue fever are common.
