World Hunger

by: Brandon Charlton

Background and History

World hunger started when poverty began. It is an endless cycle of the poor being hungry and the hungry being poor. Also in between that is the population. In certain areas of the world there is to much people in one country that the there isn't enough resources to feed anyone.

What is happening?

A big cause that is happening around the world is hunger. To say that people are being starved we have to look behind it to find the source why, and that is poverty. Since people are poor they cannot afford food, or since they have some money they spend it on food making them poor again causing an endless cycle of poverty and hunger.

How many people are affected?

Between the years of 2010-2012 an estimated total of 870 million people from around the world have suffered from chronic undernourishment.

Does world hunger affect Canada?

In a way hunger can affect Canada. With the increase in hunger and Canada helping out those in need of food we are shortening in resources, and when and if we run out it will be problematic to strive to survive.

What is being done?

Right now regions from North and South America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East are trying to help to stop the hunger. one of the plans that is being issued is Plan Canada, which is to stop poverty and by stopping poverty it will reduce the world hunger.

What can we do?

The most that we can do is to start a protest against the government to start a debate about world hunger. But right now we can start by working with people who are open with foreign aid.
