#OnTheMove #Refugee finally reaches #shelter

 

He was residing in #Homs with his parents when conflict between government and rebellion groups started. He belongs to a minority sect in #Syria. His family was caught in the middle of brutality from rival religious groups. He lost his parents, his younger brother and had his home turned to ashes. Escaping death miraculously, he ran for survival. He decided to cross the closest border of Lebanon, 30 miles away. Walking every inch of the journey on foot, with limited food & water, taking refuge in bus stations and damaged buildings, and surviving for three days, he finally reached the border – exhausted.

His 3 days journey was the toughest three day walk of his life. He was shot in the leg, physically tortured and was persecuted by rival group on the move.

On his arrival at Refugee Camp, he was taken to emergency for immediate medical assistance. He recovered in three weeks and relocated himself to a shelter closer to Syrian border. Tagged as #Refugee he welcomed his #OnTheMove journey with smile.

Unlike others he chose to #Help. He joined the local volunteers team and started adding his bit of share to help humanity. He is waiting positively for  Happy & Good Mornings.

Hidden Hunger

Tayyib Foods is committed to helping kill Hidden Hunger through science, innovation, and quality.

Hidden Hunger is unlike the hunger that comes from a lack of food. It is a chronic lack of vitamins and minerals that often has no visible warning signs, so that people who suffer from it may not even be aware of it. Its consequences are nevertheless disastrous: Hidden Hunger can lead to mental impairment, poor health and productivity, or even death. One in three people in the world suffer from Hidden Hunger. Women and children from the lower income groups in developing Islamic countries are most exposed to Hidden Hunger.

“There are more buyers of wheat in Ethiopia than sellers of wheat at all levels of income — an important result because it means that at all levels of living standards, more households benefit from food aid (and a subsequent reduction in wheat prices) than are hurt by it.”

Why Give Food
 

Levinsohn and McMillan* estimate that, in the absence of food aid, the price of wheat in Ethiopia would be $295 per metric ton, compared to an actual price of $193 per metric ton in 1999. On average, the authors conclude, “the loss in consumer surplus works out to roughly 37 US dollars per household per year for households that consume wheat and the gain in producer surplus works out to roughly 157 US dollars per household per year for households that sell wheat.” In a nation such as Ethiopia, where the poverty line is about $132 per year, the impact is therefore substantial.

(NBER Working Paper 11048)

People often wonder how food aid can result into long term social impact. It’s simple. The surest way to break out of the cycle of poverty is through education. Education can significantly improve the quality of life of a family for generations to come. When the basic needs of a child, such as food are not met, education often becomes the last priority. So food serves as a catalyst to break the poverty circle.

Tayyib meals not only provide food but provide the essential nutrients to the masses so that the child can focus on his wellbeing and education and the adult can focus on being productive for his/her family. Disease is a poor person’s biggest enemy and through our breakthrough nutritional program, you can empower the poor for the long term.

Dubai, UAE: Poverty, hunger and lack of drinking of water represent the biggest problems faced by the world. “Increase in global population, conflicts, climate change and the economic problems are predominantly contributing to poverty and hunger problems,” says Adeel A. Khan CEO Tayyib Foods, Dubai UAE. “In today’s challenging times, the Humanitarian sector needs creative and cost effective solutions for its food aid programs. Tayyib Foods provides those solutions through our Ready to Eat meals that are highly nutritional, localized taste, shelf stable and easy to store and transport. ”

 

Recent activities across the globe prove that, food riots have erupted in countries all along the equator. “We Are Hungry” was the slogan of country wide protests in Haiti which led to forced resignation of the Prime Minister. Similarly more than 20 people were killed in Cameroon riots. Army of Egypt got strict orders from the President to bake bread; hoarding rice in Philippines can result life imprisonment and many similar stories are making headlines in news today.

 

“World agriculture has entered a new, unsustainable and politically risky period,” says Joachim von Braun, the head of International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Washington, DC.

 

A large number of poor are selling their animals, tools and any available resources to feed their families. Mankind has many remarkable accomplishments including exploring space and inventing these high tech gadgets, yet the problem of poor dying from hunger remains the biggest problem in the world.  World leaders and humanitarian communities should focus more on solving hunger issues.
