This states that a chronically homeless person is one who is on the streets or in a shelter (The Annual Homeless Assessment Report to Congress, 2007). This often results in the prevention of many homeless families receiving assistance therefore affecting the increase of the homeless population. Two of the main causes of family homelessness are poverty and lack of affordable housing. In fact, recently, children represent a disproportionate share of the poor in the United States; they are 25 percent of the total population, but 35 percent of the poor population. In 2008, 15.45 million children, or 20.7%, were poor (Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United States, 2009).
The most common cause of anemia is a lack of iron in one's body. According to the website Globalization 101, 56% of women in the world are anemic, and that number rises to a whopping 76% of women in South and Southeast Asia. Anemic women are at greater risk of “infant mortality rates” and premature birth of their children. Vitamin A is another necessity that a person simply cannot live without, and a vitamin that is not distributed evenly around the world. Vitamin A deficiency (VAD) causes 250,000 to 500,000 children to go blind each year (most of these children live in impoverished countries).

The unemployment level in our country has nearly doubled since 2007, and children can be some of the hardest hit it our economy.
Malnutrition in Rwanda The world produces enough food for every person to have over 2,700 calories per day. Given this ratio, it is shocking that 800 million people in the world are malnourished today (International Fund for Agricultrual Development). Malnutrition occurs when a person is not consuming a sufficient amount of micro and macro nutrients. Micro nutrients consist of vitamins, and macro nutrients are carbohydrates, proteins and fats that a person consumes by eating food. Malnutrition is a terrible issue that many developing countries are facing today.
The first influence of the plague on the weakening was how many of the sick who were not killed overnight asked clergymen, who themselves often became ill, for answers, and the answers were usually not satisfactory and drove people to look for answers away from the church. Also playing into the church’s weakness was the clergy being drastically reduced in size with certain sects seeing a decrease of one third of the officials. Part of the reason for the exceptionally high mortality rate among the clergy was that they were often requested by the family of a sick person and were in close proximity to more of the sick than any other group. The deaths of many skilled clergymen caused not fully trained members to be cast into their shoes, which again caused much disillusionment amongst the churches followers because the untrained clergy was rarely the same quality of those who had deceased

The genocide in Darfur has claimed 400,000 lives and displaced over 2,500,000 people in camps. Also 3.5 million people are now considered hungry. More than one hundred people continue to die each day; five thousand die every month. The Sudanese government disputes these estimates and denies any connection with the Janjaweed militia. It is assumed that the hundreds of rapes reported and treated are not even close to the actual number committed, as victims of rape in Darfur are often too scared or too ashamed to seek help.
“Discuss the relationship between stress, anxiety habits and phobias and discuss how you would treat these issues with hypnotherapy” Stress, anxieties, habits and phobias are massive parts of our everyday lives and for a lot of people they can become extremely hard to deal with.
