Unscramble the Blue Letters

Children need food not only to survive but also to grow physically and mentally. Every day they fail to eat, they lose a little bit of their fuurte. Amongst the extreme poor, one in three children are permanently stunted from a limitefe of not eating enough. When that's combined with poor access to health care, one in 10 eemrxtley poor children die before they reach age five. And only one quertar of children complete high school because they lack school fees. Hunger and extreme poverty curb human pttoaienl in every possible way. We see ourselves as a thinking, feeling and moral human race, but until we slvoe these problems for all of our members, we fail that srntaadd, because every person on this panlet matters. This child matters. These children matter. This girl mttears.

Original Text

Children need food not only to survive but also to grow physically and mentally. Every day they fail to eat, they lose a little bit of their future. Amongst the extreme poor, one in three children are permanently stunted from a lifetime of not eating enough. When that's combined with poor access to health care, one in 10 extremely poor children die before they reach age five. And only one quarter of children complete high school because they lack school fees. Hunger and extreme poverty curb human potential in every possible way. We see ourselves as a thinking, feeling and moral human race, but until we solve these problems for all of our members, we fail that standard, because every person on this planet matters. This child matters. These children matter. This girl matters.
