Spier Volunteers contribute to Stop Hunger Now

MAJ 28, 2013

According to the World Hunger Day website, 90% of deaths can be attributed to “hunger and poverty related illnesses” especially in developing countries. This is more than the AIDS virus or any other disease. The aim of World Hunger Day is to raise awareness about this state of affairs and to encourage organisations to get involved and contribute, not only by sponsoring food parcels or helping with the distribution thereof, but also through educational efforts. The idea is to teach people how to fish rather than simply giving them fish, as the proverbial saying goes.
