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 arrogance in some people really shows when they are willing to pay a couple of dollars for a bag of chips but they do not even think about donating. Famine is the extreme scarcity of food; the fact is that there is enough food to feed the people of the world. The world produces 17% more food per a person than 30 years ago. Awareness should be raised to help the close to a billion people starving. Famine happens all around the world but 98% of the world’s hungry live in developing countries. Change is possible but action must be taken by everyone. The main ways to solve world hunger is by donating to support groups and by raising awareness. In today’s society, if one did…
