It doesn´t belong to we humans to stop hunger, it belongs to God when he establishes his perfect kingdom in Earth. In that time, no hunger, or pain, or disieses will exist. Of course if we want to be there, we must folow God«s word, the bible and adjust our living way to his principles and laws, so we can be regarded in the day of judgement.
I think that this is one for the Governments to take up. In my opinion, there are millions of people needlessly starving in the world, while so many countries waste such a huge amount of food. We take food for granted and throw so much away which is quite shocking.
My daughter did a survey at home for school about how much food is wasted. I was shocked at the amount that we as a family actually wasted. From that point on, I vowed only to buy what would not be wasted. Now we do not waste any food.
There is enough food in the world to feed everyone, it is the wastage and distribution of this food that is the problem. Instead of letting huge amounts of food rot away, the world leaders need to get their act together and come up with a plan that everyone's basic needs are met.
More education is needed to help those in third world countries to help themselves e.g. to grow food, purify the water. Obviously this takes money and with the state of the economy in most countries, they do not see this as a priority, but hunger has been an issue for decades and it really should be addressed.
Melafx- I totally agree with your answer it will only get better when God establishes His kingdom on Earth. As long as sin is in the world we will always have hunger, disease, famine, disasters, wars and other destruction that will affect the world.
The only way is to live by the Bible the road map to life; the teachings, the commandments and I could go on. In the mean time we can be servants and help each other, give to the needy. Each one reach one.
The US Military spends in ever week what it would take to feed, clothe, and shelter everyone that needs those things in the entire world for an entire year.
The answer is clear - get the war monger corporate profiteering filth out of office in the USA.
I believe that we should issue food stamps from the International Monetary Fund to each of the 7 billion inhabitants of our planet. We should do this every month for twelve months as an experiment. The world corporations have received handouts from governments since 2008.
The total cost of this program depends on the amount of the monthly stipend. I suggest $100.00 per month.
The wealthy will laugh at the amount of their check and the poor will cry at their new found wealth. Large families will benefit most and will start their own businesses. This will create a "trickle up effect".
The monthly cost will be $700 billion which will be much lower than the amounts which are pilfered from the public treasury by the rich each month.
The annual cost of this program will be $8.4 Trillion Dollars. This infusion of capital into the poorest regions of the world will reap the greatest benefit to the world economy. Economics is people.
Now, I realize that the wealthy will balk at giving $1,200.00 to each person because this will reduce the pool of slave labor. A family of four will receive $4,800.00 which is more than they have seen in a lifetime.
Therefore, I propose an alternative plan reducing the payment to $10.00 per month or $120.00 annually. That will give a family of 4 just $480.00 annually.
The rich will scoff at the pittance. The poor will feed themselves and improve their lot in life.
The monthly cost to the IMF will be only 70 billion dollars. The annual cost will be $840 billion dolars. This is less than ONE Trillion Dollars to solve the problem.
Offer the world banks a one percent transaction fee and they will distribute the funds from the world bank.
The banks can collect ID information from each payee and we will have a worldwide census completed for the price. Every man woman and child in the world will have a bank account for direct deposit of their funds each month.
Everybody wins; the people, the governments and the corporations. The price tag is $840 Billion dollars to end world hunger for one year. Its a bargain at the price. The money will be spent and recirculated in the economy and some of it will be saved improving deposits.
