World Food Day
October 16 is World Food Year with the theme “Our actions are our future- Better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life”. The use of experience, nutrition, technology transfer from developed to developing countries, leads to prosperity and progress in the food industry in Third World nations. World Food Day is a flip-flop to awaken dormant consciences and a day of sympathy for the hungry who are deprived of the most basic right to life, food.
In the present century, malnutrition is a serious crisis in most societies, especially in the Third World. Malnutrition, or in other words, any deviation from natural nutrition that causes the body to lack access to basic nutrients, is one of the major causes of physical and mental illness. Poverty is one of the leading causes of malnutrition in the world.
Eighty percent of the world’s population is preoccupied with access to food. Lack of food and nutrients needed by the body has become a major problem for many people around the world. With environmental pollution and degradation, various issues arise that are effective in reducing the world’s food resources. Heat and drought, soil erosion, declining rainfall, acid rain, and the oppressive policies of some powerful countries against developing countries are among the causes of hunger and malnutrition in the world.
Hunger and malnutrition are not only due to lack of access to food, but also other social factors such as poverty, income inequality, and lack of access to health care, education, and safe drinking water.
The number of hungry people will reach zero in 2030
As we said, World Food Day is an international day that has been named in order to create 100% security for the food industry. This World Day celebrates the global progress of the food industry. Until the number of hungry people reaches zero and the world, by celebrating such a day, promises that by 2030 there will be no more hunger.
At Hope Donors, we strive to achieve a zero-starvation by 2030. In this regard, in many African countries, we provided food and training assistance to create a complete food supply chain.
