It is devastating how much some human beings live without. According to the World Bank, there are at least 1.1 billion people living in extreme poverty, barely able to afford food, clothing, medicine and other basic necessities.
Here in Australia, many of us are fortunate enough to afford an excess of these necessities. I never want to take for granted how fortunate I am.
Share The Meal is an app created by the UN World Food Programme that offers us an affordable and easy way to feed undernourished children in countries such as Syria, Yemen and Uganda. When I first saw this app I was inspired! What an incredible way to tackle extreme poverty and hunger around the globe!
For every meal I enjoy over the next 12 months which was not made with my own two hands, I pledge today to share it with a hungry child.
