It is a “shame on humanity”

Despite repeated promises to eradicate hunger, the number of people going hungry continues to grow – now more than 852 million – with a child dying every five seconds from malnutrition and related diseases, an independent United Nations expert said today.

It is a “shame on humanity,” especially when the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) calculates that our planet could feed twice the current population of 6 billion if there were better food distribution, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Jean Ziegler told a press conference.
