Josette Sheeran: Ending hunger now! (and a personal comment from Jonas)

Hello.

Usually I don’t publish the latest talk because most of my visitors also follow @TEDnews. But today I make a exception, because of the crisis in the horn of Africa, where millions of people could die of starvation.

Please watch this talk, and consider to donate money to some of the aid organizations working in the region. I’ve choose Doctors Without Borders (http://www.msf.org/msf/donations/donations_home.cfm) and World Food Programme (https://www.wfp.org/donate/fillthecup?icn=homepage-donate-cup&ici=big-button-link) for my donations.

Josette Sheeran, the head of the UN’s World Food Program, talks about why, in a world with enough food for everyone, people still go hungry, still die of starvation, still use food as a weapon of war. Her vision: “Food is one issue that cannot be solved person by person. We have to stand together.”

Thank you.
