Hunger & Starvation Myth #6: 

Wealthy nations should address their own domestic problems first, instead of worrying about other countries.

 

The problems we face, both at home and internationally, are increasingly global. Population, environment, illegal immigration, disease, war and political instability increasingly these are issues that ignore borders and affect us all. As Willie Brandt once said, "As long as hunger exists, peace cannot prevail."

In addition, The Hunger Project is committed to ending world hunger as an expression of global citizenship, global partnership and global responsibility. We consider that hunger exists not as a local or national problem, but as a global problem. All of us have a responsibility to create a world where all people have the chance to lead lives free from hunger.

While The Hunger Project focuses on the most severe forms of hunger, which occur primarily in South Asia and Africa, many innovative groups addressing domestic hunger have "spun off" from The Hunger Project organizations created by Hunger Project supporters, and utilizing our principles and approach.
