Trying to visualize a world without food is unimaginable. Fortunately, this is not a reality for people living in developed countries but it is a reality for roughly 925 million people around the world who are hungry. The sad truth is that these aren’t just numbers, they are people. I chose to pick this issue because I have firsthand experience in seeing people starving. My trip to Kenya, Mozambique and South Africa a couple of years ago helped me realize that there are people in this world who are less fortunate. Viewing a donation commercial on television is nothing compared to actually seeing what is happening. I feel as if famine is one of the prominent problems humanity faces to this day. This topic is important to me because I feel as people should be more aware of what is going on in the world.

The weather is an important factor because when there is no rainfall, there is drought, thus there is no food for the population. Conflicts and the corrupted governments are also a cause of the famine. Africa is the region that is the most affected by famine with 7 of…

They were not treated kindly. The Berlin Conference divided Africa with no respect for…
