Witnessing a child going hungry in any country is a very impacting experience. In Bolivia it was always very depressing to watch a child devour bread because they haven’t eaten for most of the day. I’ve also noticed children going hungry in our own country America, and it was even more upsetting. How can a country so rich and modern…be ok with children who only get one meal a day.
Lack of food is not the only problem we are facing, but also lack of nutritional value. It’s disturbing to watch a child express amazement that our home always has fresh fruits ready for anyone to eat. More disturbing are the facts presented by the No Kid Hungry organization https://www.nokidhungry.org/problem/hunger-facts 1 in 5 children does not get the food resources needed to stay healthy?
If you are feeling charitable this month, why not help end hunger in your own country, quite possibly something many of us take for granted.
