Death by Hunger


Our world is taking us nowhere. Enough food for mankind to survive yet one billion people are in starvation. Food scarcity has only increased in Pakistan in recent years. Families that earn bread on daily wages struggle to make ends meet. Helping them will not make us small in any way. It would not make much difference to our lives but it will help the poor families by bounds. By helping these families, we are making them realize that they are not alone and I am sure we do not want to leave them alone. We must fight together in this crucial time. Let us let them know we stand by them come what may.

Hunger is the source of a lot of crimes such as begging and theft. There have been incidences where mothers get rid of children because of the extreme hunger. Why do we always make them guilty when we are responsible for the deaths by hunger ourselves. We make them come to this point where they are left with no other choice. They believe that this is their life. They do not think out of the box or maybe they do not know there is something more to think about. It is us who must make them realize that there is more to learn and more to life because someone must put it out there for their awareness.


One of the major problems that Pakistan is confronted with is food shortage. It is estimated that 40% of food is wasted in Pakistan. Pakistan has the highest rates of malnutrition, undernourishment, and childhood stunting in the world. About 29.5% of Pakistani are living below the poverty belt. Even though food is readily available but unfortunately Pakistan’s food policy has failed and the natives particularly the lower middle class cannot manage to afford enough food due to high prices.

Unemployment and poverty are linked together. Many people live in poverty because they are unable to find jobs even though they are willing to work at minimum wage. Highly qualified people in Pakistan remain jobless and end up in criminal activities to earn a living and support their families.  If the income growth had been equally distributed the poverty rate would have been much better than it is now. Rapidly growing population, defective and low-quality educational system and incorporation of wealth in a few hands are catalysts in the growing poverty rate.

The elite use more than half of the funds for their use which leads to poverty. For instance, there is a government hospital with a 10 million budget someone uses 8 million for personal use. The hospital would not be upgraded and no new equipment would be there. So, if a member of a powerful or wealthy family falls into a situation it will be easy for him to go to a private hospital but for someone who cannot afford would have no other choice than to be there and not be given the minimum health services.


The Government should be more concerned about food insecurity. People’s talent is wasted. The study is based on foreign research. Research labs are limited and far behind the rest of the world. People have more theoretical knowledge and they do not practically implement it due to no practice and opportunity to experiment.

As a citizen and someone not in power or authority, we should understand that above anything comes humanity. Serving the poor is one of the greatest humanitarian help an individual can provide in his or her lifetime. We should thank Allah Almighty for whatever we have and help those who may not have the basic needs. Helping the poor is a moral responsibility of anyone who can spare even a penny. Let’s move forward unitedly forward and vow to help those in need as much as is our capacity.
