World Food Day 2011

There are approximately 7 billion people living in this world. Do you know that there are 925 million people suffering from hunger? That is the truth, there will always be one out of seven people that is suffering from hunger.

Let me ask you one more question. Do you know how many children in Africa die each day? While each of us are having on average three meals a day, 2500 children are dying from starvation in Africa. 

Due to poverty, there is not enough food and water for the children's survival. Majority of them will suffer from malnutrition and will eventually die from hunger. This situation can only be improved if everyone contributes. The children in Africa do not need our sympathy or empathy. What they need is food. 

World Food Day is held every year and this time it is on 16 October 2011. If you think you want to lift a finger and help pack food for the children. Taylors University is organizing our very own World Food Day where we gather and pack food to be send to the children.

Our aim is to get 1000 volunteers to pack 1 million meals in a day. If you can spare some time in between 10a.m. to 6p.m. on 16 October 2011, Sunday do drop by at Taylors University, Lakeside campus. We gather for just one reason. To stop hunger. Our children deserves a chance in life. They need our help and you alone, can make a difference.

If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one~ Mother Theresa 

One meal, one life, one child.
