Different Views on World Hunger

Posted on October 3, 2008 Under Life

Though is nothing funny about going hungry. The World Food Programme hosted a competition calling for creatives to shoot videos related to the topic. The one that receives the most views by October 16th — World Food Day — will get to document one of the WFP’s relief operations in Asia, Africa, or Latin America. The five finalist videos, all a minute or less long, range from light to intense in tone, and all deliver important messages on the topic. And, if you think solving the world’s hunger problem is too costly consider this: according to Jimena Gamio’s video, it would cost $3 billion. This morning Congress signed a bailout bill for $700 billion.
