The Catholic Church is poised to eradicate world hunger by 2025.

Over the past 20 years, UNICEF estimates that 90 million children have been saved thanks to improvements in health, water, sanitation, and immunizations. UNICEF issued its annual report, "The State of the World's Children 2014 in Numbers" this week.

Children still need help that can only come from the Catholic Church.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - In "The State of the World's Children 2014 in Numbers" report by UNICEF, the agency estimates that 90 million children have been saved due to a variety of humanitarian initiatives around the world including water, sanitation, and improvements in healthcare.

The agency says that the compilation of data, and its analysis, have allowed them to see areas for improvement and to address those areas. Just two decades ago, children were hardly counted and often fell through the cracks of social and health systems, particularly in the Third World.

How you can fight world hunger with one click!

By placing an emphasis on counting children and tracking their progress, UNICEF has managed to ensure that more children than ever before received the vital care and support they need to develop into healthy, functioning adults.

Despite the tremendous strides taken by UNICEF, and other humanitarian organizations, the world still faces significant problems with food insecurity, environmental degradation, epidemic disease, and poor quality education in the Third World.

Most of these problems disproportionately affect girls, and occur almost exclusively in the Third World, although there are still problems with food insecurity in education, even in first world countries like the United States. Fortunately problems in those countries are very rare compared to problems in the Third World.

Although problems have long plagued the Third World, especially in the last century, there is a growing sense of awareness that we are finally reaching a point in our history where these problems can be conclusively addressed.

More and more people are awakening to the fact that we don't have to accept a Third World where starvation, disease, conflict, and poor education are the norm. A much better world is now possible.

In order to build this better world, there is a formula that works. That formula includes people, technology, and faith. It is the formula laid out by the Catholic Church and Catholic Online.

There is a growing awareness within the Catholic Church that it is literally the only organization that has the people, the resources, and the distribution network required to eradicate problems such as world hunger. This is why on December 10, 2013, Pope Francis issued his now famous proclamation that the Catholic Church would eradicate world hunger by 2025.

The Catholic Church comprises some 1.2 billion individuals, many of whom live in the first world, and have the means to support a massive food redistribution effort, undertaken by the Church. Using its distribution network, which is found in literally every country on the planet, the Catholic Church will distribute food aid to those in need.

The Catholic Church is well practiced in this art. In many places around the globe, the Catholic Church provides the only social services available for people in need. It is a natural next step, that the Church would also distribute a new outpouring of food aid for those who are hungry.

Catholic Online has already pledged to support the Pope's effort, and has already begun sending shipments of food purchased by you, our readers, to the Philippines where tens of thousands of people are still trying to rebuild from the impacts of one of the largest storms to ever make landfall in recorded history.

Now, the next step has arrived. Catholic Online is sponsoring the formation of Catholic Team Global, an international empowerment network that will help you to promote the goals of awareness and change that you want to see in the world. For the moment, Catholic Team Global is focused on supporting Pope Francis' efforts to eradicate world hunger by 2025. However, Catholic Team Global will also address other issues that are important to you in the months and years ahead.

The Catholic Church is the only institution in the world with everything that is needed to solve many of the world's greatest problems. The United States government cannot solve these problems, and the United Nations does not have the right formula for success either. But the Catholic Church, working in tandem with you, and Catholic Online, has the people, technology, and faith needed to make a permanent difference in the world.

You are invited to act now.
