"In Class Assignment"

“An estimated 167 million children under five years of age in the world are underweight- the results of acute or chronic hunger. This means that 20 percent of all hungry people are children.” This really shocked me knowing that kids are our future. They are innocent living beings who probably thinks hunger is a normal thing. Many of them will probably won’t live to be 18 years of age or if they do they’ll probably experience many Chronic diseases. Hunger is preventable in some cases like war, inflation of foods and other human made problems although Mother Nature is the only cause that is unpreventable.
