    Note: The world hunger map display above is representational only and does not show the names and faces of real people. The photographs are computer composites of multiple individuals.

    It can't be real, it's just trying to be hard hitting so people donate/share and you've proved that works!

    woahh.... that is crazy. Pictures and names must not be real. But wonder if that live count is for real, it's still crazy.

    Found these facts online....

    Some facts
    • US$1.6 trillion = annual global military spending
    • US$320 billion = annual amount (additional to current spending) required to meet all of the UN Millennium Development Goals, i.e. 20% of the global military budget

    • US$100 billion = annual amount spent on nuclear weapons globally
    • US$100 billion = annual amount required to end extreme poverty and provide primary education for everyone in the world

    • US$14 billion = cost of UK Trident nuclear submarine programme - 4 submarines (some estimates put the replacement cost at double this figure)
    • US$14 billion = amount required to Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other major diseases

    • 8 million - number of children worldwide who died before their 5th birthday in 2009 due to poverty
    • US$8 million = the cost of 8 Exocet missiles

    • 300,000 = number of lives lost annually to small arms and handguns

    • US$15,000 - cost to build one school in rural Nicaragua or Pakistan and pay the teachers' salaries for one year
    • US$15,000 - cost of two cluster munitions
