According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty, and hunger is the number one cause of death worldwide. Hunger kills more than HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. Nearly 805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat while half of the world’s population (more than 3 billion) live on less than $2.50 a day.
The facts have more painful things to tells, but the crux is that the poor are hungry and their hunger traps them in poverty. We are living in a world where US spends hundreds of billions on war each year, while it needs only $30 billon to eradicate poverty worldwide.
Well, we may not be able to force US to cut down the defense budget and spend on eradicating hunger, but we can take few small steps for sure!
