INTRO One of the biggest problems our world is dealing with today is world famine. This is taking peoples lives and destroying families. Famines have been going on for hundreds of years. They also caused the spread of diseases.
PRESENT Today a lot of people are suffering from world hunger. Half of our population is dying and there seems to be not a lot of help available. In 2012 the East Africa Somalia Famine has took the life of millions of people. Also 3 million people are capable to have aids. This is due to the food rotting, and their meat being intoxicated.
EAST AFRICA FAMINE These are two images of people who are suffering from the famine. On the right is a pregnant lady who might be at risk from getting H.I.V. And the second picture is a kid starving because they are out of food because everything is rotten.
PRESENT Some other causes to famine are natural disasters such as floods, hurricanes, and tropical storms. When there are floods it causes all the crops to become flooded and they are no longer good to eat. Farmers will now have to move and try to adapt to new environment and hope they can continue farming.
PAST One of the biggest famines in history was the Irish potato famine. It took place from 1845-1851 The population went down from 8 million people to 5 million people. About 2 million aces of potatoes got rotten and a lot of people got sick especially the ones who worked in the field.
IRISH POTATO FAMINE This is a picture of how the potatoes looked when they got rotten. A lot of people didn’t know what to do when this fungus came along because no one knew it even existed.
PAST “A person who steals bread during a famine is not treated as a thief,” (Cat Stevens). To me this quote means a person who steals bread during a famine is not a thief because they are in need of food, and they are starving, They will do anything and everything to get food to eat.
GREAT CHINA FAMINE This famine was caused by natural disasters. In July 1995, the Yellow River in china had got flooded. A lot of the crops had died and a lot of people drowned. Farmers in china couldn’t grow crops for a couple of years.
CHINA FAMINE This a picture of the Yellow River in China.
FUTURE Hopefully in the world will become a better place and the population will grow. We can hope famines wont occur no more and our world wont have to suffer. We can start donation center so we can help people who have been involved in famines and provide them with the help they need.
WAYS TO PREVENT FAMINES There are many ways we can prevent famines, and one way is help from the government. Since the government has so much money, they can send all these countries that have been affect by famines food. This will help the build up there food supplies. They can make the farmers soil fertilized so their crops wont rot. The government also stated they are trying to make peace with other countries so they can help support them.
TECHNOLOGY Technology can also play a big role in preventing famines. If we produce more machines and stuff it’s a better chance our products and food will not rot. Its also better because theses machines will be producing products faster so there will hopefully be more food for everyone. We wont have to worry about running out of food and crops going bad.
EDUCATION Education can also help prevent famines. If kids are educated they will learn more about famines. They will learn about past famines and what people did to survive. If a famine ever occurs again students will know what to expect and how to react to it. Also if they are educated they will set high living stadards.
