Liberia's schools see improved attendance with free meals







Summary: In Liberia many people especially students starve.  The article describes a 16 year old who dreams to be a nurse so she can help her family out. She lives with her grandma who cannot afford to feed her on a daily basis. This family also shares one plate of food which means there is never enough for all of them. Organizations around the world such as Mary’s Meals are working hard to be able to provide the schools with meals. The kids of the schools are unable to work efficiently when on an empty stomach, so feeding them benefits the way they learn and their lifestyle.

Connection: During the revolutionary war many organizations such as red cross provided the necessities for those who ill and injured. This then helped the soldiers get what they need in order to keep fighting for their side. This article shows that humanitarian organizations are still needed today in order to help others in need.


Question:  How can we sustain humanitarian organizations that way they can continue to help the less fortunate? Why?

  1. The government should increase the amount of money they provide to schools to make sure children are properly nourished and get a good education.

  2. We need to find a way to transfer supermarket food waste to people who need it the most. In supermarkets a large quantity of food goes un-bought, only serving the purpose of making the rest look good. This surplus food needs to be transfered to those in need.

  3. i think we need to find a way to get food to them because that's the only reason there are starving is because they don't have any resources to get much food.

  4. The situation that they are in is very drastic. They need the education to have a better life after childhood.

  5. I think we should find a way for us to be able to send them money for food. Because it seems like they are not getting help from nobody else.
