Starvation. Pain. Suffering. Death.
Many of us are total strangers to these emotions. We are living in well off homes, eating three meals a day, never feeling that deep, terrible booming in our stomachs. Never looking at ourselves in the mirror, ribs as prominent as ever, thinking, “I’m going to die. I can’t do this. A bowl of rice for today just wasn’t enough.”
In the world that we live in, there is a terrific abundance of food. Plenty of nourishing meals for every single person in our world. But there is an inequality in access to these world resources. There are 578 million starving people in Asia Pacific alone and about 1 billion people who are malnourished globally.
