End World Hunger
It is hard to believe that every year over 15 million children die from hunger and this number is growing in every passing year.The World Health Organization estimates that 1/3 of the world population is underfed and another 1/3 are starving.1 in 7 people do not get enough food to be healthy. Hunger and malnutrition are the number one risks to health, worldwide. It’s high time and I think it’s part of our human duty that we do whatever possible to eradicate this huge problem from the world scenario.
This seems to be difficult but not impossible as Christopher Reeve says- Once you choose hope, anything's possible.
There are many organization who are working hard and fighting against this huge problem. Organizations like Heifer International are the solution. Other organizations such as the The Hunger Site, provide you with free ways to help feed the hungry. Also you can join United Nations' World Food Programme - According to their Web site, their "food assistance reaches an average of 100 million people in 80 countries every year. Almost 12,000 people work for the organization, most of them in remote areas, directly serving the hungry poor." So donate generously.
You can also help by providing food to the needy nearby your house or in your community everyday or once a week.
Give this line a thought that- you are blessed with food why then keep another child of God hungry. Yes you can make a difference to this huge problem and it is because of your single little step taken today this world will be free from the curse of hunger.
