Hi, I wanted to ask if you could give us a space, to communicate the 
project launch  "Just five seconds".

Just five seconds

Every five seconds, someone in the world die because of starvation. 
Every five seconds, a new image with the hashtag "foodporn" is 
published on Instagram. It is as if the reckless spending and 
malnutrition proceeded at the same rate, for an incredible and sad 
coincidence.Who has not come across or has created a photo and then 
post it on Instagram with hashtag foodporn? In the jargon of the 
internet, this keyword has come to identify images of overabundant 
and excessive portions. they can be identified with 5 seconds of 
happiness for someone, but not for all: in those same five seconds a 
person dies from lack of food. They die every day of hunger and more 
than 26,000 people die in a year, more than 3 million children under 
age 5. Hunger is on the first place in the list of factors of 
greatest risk for health in the world and each year hunger kills more 
people than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.
