Definition of Hunger
a. A strong desire or need for food.
b. The discomfort, weakness, or pain caused by a prolonged lack of food
Well for some, dieting to lose weight is a luxury that, sadly, they will never experience. For far too many option 'b' above is what they experience on a day to day basis.
I have written this post as I am supporting the ONE campaign and would like you to do the same. If you feel sadness and guilt that so many people in this world, our world, are starving then just sign the petition.
The key aims of the campaign are that by 2015:--
- We could see 15 million fewer children chronically malnourished and
- 50 million people lifted out of extreme poverty
That's it. No money. Just a quick log on, log out - job done. What's the worse that could happen?!
