16072014 x World Food Programme

So today i finally caved, it’s no-effort-ootd day.

It kindda troublesome to dress up on Wednesdays because i’m dancing in the evening and i would rather wear my sneakers out than to carry them out in my bag; as if my bag is not heavy enough already.

I should just invest in more shift dresses!

(now take a look at the new banner on my sidebar on the LEFT. more on that later)

As y’all realise, there is a new addition on my sidebar. no it’s not a spam.

It’s a call out for help from hungry children in Central Africa Republic.

In first world countries, i’m sure most of us are guilty of over-eating, over-ordering and then we end up throwing away food. So i doubt any of us have ever expierenced real hunger. Even they muslim get to eat after fasting.

But there are millions of children around the world, especially Africa, who count their days away on an empty stomach, not knowing will they wake up the next time they close their eyes because they died from starvation. As you know, the human body can only last 7 days without food/nourishment.

Thats why, there’s the World Food Programme to help.

World Food Programme is voluntary organisation aimed to fight hunger worldwide

WFP is part of the United Nations system and is voluntarily funded.

Born in 1961, WFP pursues a vision of the world in which every man, woman and child has access at all times to the food needed for an active and healthy life. We work towards that vision with our sister UN agencies in Rome — the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) — as well as other government, UN and NGO partners.

On average, WFP reaches more than 80 million people with food assistance in 75 countries each year. About 11,500 people work for the organization, most of them in remote areas, directly serving the hungry poor.

I actually learnt about this programme because of Shakira’s new song “lalala”, which aim to help promote the school meal programme in WFP. Knowing that i cannot do much as a volunteer, I pledged to make a monthly donation for the School Meal Programme and Central Africa Republic.

Just fyi, the WFP don’t just feed the people, but make sure the food they’re getting is packed with nutrition. So it’s not those canned processed food that we always see in movies that are sent to relief centers.

Not trying to say that “hey look i’m such a good person” No. The reason i’m talking bout this on my blog is, i hope each and everyone of you, will have this consideration to help these poor people, especially kids.

Have you ever felt the hunger pang when you skipped a meal? it’s uncomfortable right?

Imagine feeling that for your whole life, and the pangs intensifies as the day goes.

Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

It does not take much, just USD$30 can feed a child for a month! Or u can choose to donate just $5, every donation counts!

So please, do a good deed today, and save these people, click on the banner to make a donation.

Remember,

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.

-Winston Churchill

on a sidenote, it’s celebrities like Shakira that deserve our respect. If you’re rich, famous, use your power to advocate people to do good! have a good day people!
