But, don’t confuse with the effort of poverty exploitation.

    Poverty and hunger are the two faces of the same coin. What is poverty? Poverty is the lack of
    income / resource to meet the minimum requirements like food, clothing and other common needs
    of the family members. Poverty is the prime reason for Hunger. Hunger is lack of minimum
    nutrious food atleast twice a day to the family members. Hunger is nothing but Hell on the earth. POVERTY is the
    abbreviation of P – Pity, O – Oppression, V – Violence, E – Extortion, R – Regret, T – Torture, Y – Yell. HUNGER is
    abbreviation of H – Humility U – Unbearable, N – Nasty, G – Gruesome, E – Extortion, R – Rage.
    Hunger is the ancient enemy of the humanity. It is the most hidden self secret of the man kind as its revelation will bring them
    shame and humiliation. 50,000 people die every day due to poverty related causes. More tha n 854 million go to bed hungry
    everyday. 1 billion can’t read and write. 1.2 billion people have no access to safe drinking water. Almost half the world lives
    with less than $2 a day. 35% of world’s poor live in India. 40% of the world’s under weight chil dren under the age of 5 live in
    India. As the food crisis is being compounded by ever multiplying population, extreme weather conditions, ecological
    imbalance and reduction in land for agriculture due to occupation of lands under various developmental acti vities. Every year
    4 million people join the world’s shameful club of poverty. Hunger related disease has got numerous disadvantages such as
    lack of self esteem, fear, lack of competence, confidence, inferiority complex, laziness, lethargy, negligence, ne gligence of
    hygiene, ill health, poor body immunity, lack of creativity, missing opportunities, social status, illiteracy and respect.
    There are numerous International and National NGO’s are working to eradicate the largest enemy of the world HUNGER.
    Even though their services are highly appreciable, they bring slow and steady reforms. However to certain extent their
    support will make the hungry people steadily dependable because of lack of self awareness rather than trying to be self reliant.
    It is not possible for any government or organization to pump huge funds constantly to eradicate ever increasing poverty
    unless the poor population becomes self reliant ultimately. Only such people will swim out of the dark sea of self poverty for
    ever. To fully support such challenging task of “POVERTY FREE STRUGGLE” here are Sri Mission’s amazing 20
