There are many reasons why people are starving around the world today. Some of the reasons are drought, population size, not enough money, biofuel production, low productivity, HIV/AIDS, etc. Bill Gates, a multimillionaire business magnet has a foundation for world hunger and how he thinks it can be improved.The author of gatesnotes says, “While the global health community is still working to understand all of the causes and solutions to malnutrition, we do know a lot about how to ensure children get the nutrition they need for a healthy start to life.” While many people lack the knowledge of starving children around the world, Bill Gates stats an idea of what the children need to receive to get their daily needs everyday. While many people know about the starving children around the world, they do not know the correct nutrition they need to help their bodies grow. “Of the world’s hungry people, 98% live in developing countries. The root causes of food insecurity and malnutrition are poverty and inequity rather than shortages,”says Saad Muse, and author from the African News Service. Many people are highly vulnerable to hunger and malnutrition. Some of the people that have lack of access to food also are very affected by starvation. They can live in areas affected by drought, live close to a war zone,and single mothers can be affected because they don't have the money to afford the entire household. Other factors could be that one parent is disabled, those that don’t have access to water for farming and gardening so they cannot grow there plants, and those that don’t have access to money to buy agricultural things. The United States has many methods to try to help prevent starvation rates from going up.
There are three key ways that the United States can help reduce world hunger and poverty. The United States can influence public policy to support the hungry, contribute financially to reduce hunger and poverty, or work directly with the poor people. Bill Gates, a multimillionaire business magnet, has a foundation and a profit for world hunger. He says, “We’re also beginning to develop new crops that are more-nutritious--including a sweet potato that’s enriched with vitamin A—and also produce a higher yield.” The more nutritious crops that can be grown in developing countries, can help reduce world hunger. Many of the woman that live in these poor countries have children. When they breastfeed their child, it isn’t getting enough nutrients in the mothers breastfeeding milk for the baby to survive. “That’s why we continue to research the best ways to address cultural beliefs and other barriers that have kept almost half of all women from using optimal breastfeeding practices,” says the author of Morning Edition, Cengage Gale. World hunger affects more than 925 million people in the world, causing it can be a very deathly condition. The United States needs to target the people who produce the food worldwide. Heifer International has been working with small farming communities to raise and create surplus crops that can be sold to the hungry. The United States is starting an organization to connect farmers together to supply food to the hungry. Working faster and bigger has to be the ultimate goal so they hungry people around the world can be feed. This can also lead to farming in the developing countries. This way the children and their families can have food on the table, and they can also have enough food for their livestock too.
