Free Rice

Almost all humans of the legal age are aware that there are many countries that are starving. We heard about it. We read about it. But what are we really been doing in order to help? To a person of my living status, there's really nothing I can do to help on that, except of prayer. But one should not under-estimate the power of prayer. In fact, it is the most powerful of all, because it is God who holds everything under the earth.

According to UN statistics 850 million people worldwide suffer from hunger. They are
underweight and do not get enough to eat. Another 2 billion people suffer from malnutrition
caused by lack of vitamins A, C or B3 or minerals such as iodine and zinc.

The UN Millennium Goals signed by the nations of the world in 2000 has as its first
goal to reduce the number of people suffering from hunger by 50% to around 400 million
by 2015. While some countries such as China and Brazil are likely to reach this goal
for their people, worldwide the number of people suffering from acute malnutrition
increases by 4 million. The number in Africa is now 210 million and India has 220 million
suffering from hunger.

I am going to introduce to you a game. This is not an ordinary game. This game enables you to help UN World Food Program to give away free rice to that countries. Click on the "Free Rice".
