Hunger Starts With Hope

People who are hungry are human just like us, but we have a few differences. They are poor, and we are rich enough to eat any food we wish. Some people only eat filthy grass with some water. Think how you would feel if that was your dinner. Children are most at risk of dying because their growing bodies need nutrition. Do you think we can change something? Do they need to live like this forever?

Every second makes a difference because 16,000 children die daily from starvation. Please come to this workshop to learn how to create social change that will save lives.

The baby on the right could be reaching out for to help. It's never too young to learn how to make a difference.

Unit 4 Reflection Name: Kris Kim Global Issues Reflection
  • Enduring Understanding: Responsible choices are part of being a global citizen.
  • Essential Question: How does one participate in global citizenship and why is it important?
  1. Based upon your prior knowledge and current studies develop a response to the essential question that includes topic sentences and details with examples. Place your response below using as much space as you need to form a complete answer.

In this project, we learned about global citizens and global issues. We chose our own topic that is global issue and my topic was “Hunger” which is a big global issue. On my personal note, I think global citizens (including me) don’t care about global issues very much. They might know that it is another poverty countries’ problem and doesn’t affect us. But it is a huge problem that we need to solve it. The problem is that global citizens don’t act like they supposed to be. We all know what is it like and what will it be, but they are just too lazy and make things worse. If we don’t solve this problem, then the Earth will be hard to live. We need to care more, and act for these global issues. We solve the problem together. Go step by step, we can make a huge difference between today, and tomorrow.
  1. Tomorrow you will be presenting the research process to grade 5 students. You will need to explain the purpose of our studies. Think about your learning and make a list of those things that you discovered to be useful to you as a researcher/learner.

Screen_shot_2012-05-18_at_9.12.58_AM.pngThe book that is on the left is an awesome source. It's just a wonderful book because it has a specific information about hungers. This is going to be my favorite book ever. This book makes me sad, and makes my tears come out.
This book also has quotes what UN said, and what hungers said.
“Hunger and malnutrition are the underlying cause of more than half of all child deaths, killing nearly 6 million children each year.” said UN.
One of person in Afghanistan said, “We don’t eat three times a day because we don’t have enough food. Often we eat either in the morning or at midday and then eat again the next day. We eat whatever is available’ sometimes only a piece of bread with water.”
After I read this, I think I need to donate some money to poor people. They are having a hard time, so we need to donate some money, and help them for their future.

This bar chart shows the number of people who were hungry in 2006. You can see that over 400 million are from India and sub-Saharan Africa.
This is a wonderful source because it's easy to see which one is the highest or lowest and it gives me the varieties of countries of global poverty around the world. As I see this chart, I learned that I should not throw the food away. I noticed that there are a lot of hungers right now because even this chart shows the number of hungers in 2006, in modern days, many people are living, so the numbers of hungers will increase. According to my research, there are more countries that has a lot of hungers. Sometimes, you have a time when you get hungry, but you can go to the market and eat it. Right? But hungers are always hungry, which makes their stomachs hurt. They can't go to the market to buy some food because they don't have money. They are always hungry, they can't buy some food because they are poor. We need to help them for their life, and their future.

This pie chart shows the number of child deaths around the world in 2007. More than half of all child deaths are linked to malnutrition.
This source is really helpful, and useful to me because even it doesn't have any words, it shows me the population, so it is easy to look. Also, this chart expresses my feeling. It makes me sad.
Death scares you, doesn't it? Well, how would you feel if you knew that you could die any second, any minute, any hour, any day? Children are dying. I can't believe it. There are so many children who are going to die. The number of child deaths in Sub-Saharan Africa is 4.8 million which is the highest one, and South Asia is 3.1 million, 900,000 people for East Asia and Pacific.


This is a useful video to me because it gives a lot of pictures of hungers in Africa, and I can see how they look like. Also, this site made me learn something new.
They were really thin, and I can see their bones.
This quote makes me surprise.
"Every 5 seconds a person in Africa loses their life to starvation."
In every world, we need a leadership, and donation.
We need to LOVE each other, SHARE each other, and HELP each other.

This video is useful to me because it provides me a lot of pictures, and the opinions of the owner (of the video).

This is a useful article because professionals (scientists, doctors, etc.) write these articles. These people specialize in these subjects and are
reliable sources.
