LETS PUT FOOD FIRST
Imagine Living on $1.25 a Day and spending 85 cents of that to Feed ur Family, and now live with the price of BREAD, FRUITS, VEGETABELS, RICE, MEAT .
How will u put food on your table, HOW………???????
Every day nearly 1 BILLION people go to bed Hungry and that’s 1 in 7 of u, and Did u Know that every minute 170 people more become DESPERATELY POOR…….. BECAUSE FOOD IS TOO EXPENSIVE. SO what do these numbers mean?
FOR EXAMPLE, if you are poor so u Likely are MALNOURISHED, SICK, TO WEEK TO GO TO WORK OR GO TO SCHOOL.
If u survive u likely stay POOR especially if u are a women or a child.
So what is Going on over here? LOL..! A HUNGRIER WORLD + extreme weather + Insufficient Farming + Poor Harvests + Closed Markets and Volatile Prices = EXPENSIVE FOOD =MORE POOR PEOPLE, more than 170 every minute.
SO WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT IT?
• Invest in better AGRICULTURE
• Support small Farmers
• Link poor Farmers to MARKET
• Open Trade
We only can do is PROTECT THE POOR……! If we do this, I believe that there will be LESS Malnourishment and LESS Poverty.
We have to fight the hard fight which is world hunger as there is nothing haunting or heart breaking than the face of a starving child.
Remember that there are more than 1 BILLION poor people in the world, so lets be united and fight the war on starvation, poverty and
