Crisis which condemns the hunger to millions of Personaspodrian remain without food and medical care to survive. At the time that fade the basic tools that seek to engage in economic development. The effects of this recession will extend to the entire planet, alert the NGO Save The Children.

The situation could lead to a veritable catastrophe if, as it is expected, Governments and individuals now cut their aid. The crisis threatens to reduce the 76 billion euros worldwide has earmarked the development aid for this year. A significant amount, but that it does not even reach one tenth of what the Governments of United States and the European Union have mobilized in to save their financial institutions.

Fear of cuts is common among the UN agencies: World Health Organization (Who), World Food Programme (WFP) and of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)-, warn the European Commission, NGOs and experts. The crisis will increase costs and will reduce the income of the developed countries and is expected to reduce its contributions in aid plans. These contributions to the appeals of international organizations are essential to maintain the flow of aid to 923 million undernourished people in the world, to reduce the figure of 58 million women who this year have given birth without medical assistance or provide schooling for the 56 million children in Africa and Asia that have not even received primary education, according to data from the FAO and the UN.

Margaret Chan, Director-general of the who, argues that these gigantic imbalances in health make the world an unsafe and unstable place.
