Financial crisis= more hunger

“Communities are still reeling from food and fuel price rises which peaked in 2008,” Ms. Sheeran said, “and the present crisis threatens to undermine progress made in the fight against hunger.”
The studies found the groups most affected by the financial crisis were unskilled workers in urban areas, families who rely on remittances from abroad,workers laid off from the export sectors and those working in mining and tourism.

“The worst hit were not necessarily the poorest of the poor,” WFP said,“but a new group of people who face a downward slide into poverty.” (Thanks Nada)
