World community needs focus on hunger

Success - Article sent! close

The United Nations and the world community in the year 2000 had a plan to cut world hunger in half, but the now the figures are the same. The U.N., Communists, socialists and Democrats have long promised the world hunger relief, but progress is too slow.

The pope announced his plan to end world hunger by addressing the 40 percent waste in spoiled and tossed food and other solutions. (Stopping only half the waste would solve world hunger.) To date there is no response from any world leaders except in Canada.

I can understand the secular media lack of coverage, but why not from the pulpit or the Christian media? Let's get behind the pope or come up with a better plan to cure hunger. The president has a meeting with the pope soon; let's hope they agree on the same goal of ending world hunger.
