Ek Muthi Sonu ke Naam: For Children Who Go Hungry
Featuring the celebrated chef Vikas Khanna, a new video urges people to pledge a fistful to feed a child.
A youth entertainment channel ‘Being Indian’ along with Quaker Oats has released the video titled ‘Ek Muthi Sonu ke Naam‘.
Based on #QuakerFeedAChild initiative, the video urges people to think about millions of children who go hungry.
Shocking figures reveal that even today, hunger continues to remains the number one cause of death around the world with over 800 million people being chronically hungry.

According to a new study released by the World Bank Group and UNICEF, over 30 per cent of the world’s extremely poor children are living in India alone.
Depicting the emotion of every mother’s desire to make sure her child does not sleep hungry, the video depicts how much effort a mother puts into ensuring her child eats that one morsel of food.
Yet, while a few mothers sing lullabies to cajole and feed their child, there are others who don’t have anything to feed theirs. The video will motivate you to do your bit towards eradicating hunger.
The video ends with a call to action from famed chef Vikas Khanna to pledge to feed a child this festive season, giving details on how one can make a difference.
