As I read on Malia’s Blog, “How would you feel if” I told you that Suzanne Collins’ novel, The Hunger Games (link to Hunger Games trailer), was actually happening in the world? If you haven’t read this series, it is about kids fighting for their lives and dying, not only from murder, but from things like hunger and starvation.
In the Week 4 Challenge, we looked into the challenges people are facing around the world today.
One of the main reasons I chose to look into World Hunger is that I am already sponsoring a child for World Vision so I was inspired to help children around the world, especially in Africa. I found a problem called “Hunger Not a Game”. It shows that people, most of them being children, are dying of hunger and must fight to stay alive, just like the Hunger Games. Hunger kills many children each day, making the world similar to The Hunger Games. Over nine million people, five million of them being children, die each year from starvation and hunger worldwide.
This kid is only one of the millions of kids suffering of hunger.
This is one of the many mothers struggling to care for her hungry child.
IF WE GET INVOLVED, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. THE CHILDREN WON’T HAVE TO LOOK LIKE THIS, STRUGGLING FOR FOOD. Go to Hunger in the Horn of Africa for more pictures to learn more.
Visit Global Hunger to get involved and save the starving people in the world.
