Spreading awareness of this Human Tragedy

The Hunger of a Nation

A small North Korean child is forced to scrape crumbs from the earth to survive. This is a common sight in North Korea.

Government oppression in North Korea has led to the starvation of millions. The country has one of the worst living conditions in the world with hunger being a large part of it. The international community is hesitant to help because of the North Korean government’s handling. A large portion of this starvation is due to the government spending a majority of its money on military and nuclear programs. Foreign aid has slowed down because it has become aware that the government is spending this aid on things besides food. It was reported in 2011 that over six million people in North Korea needed food aid. Also a third of the children population is chronically malnourished. I’ve added a link below with more information on the subject of the hunger problem in North Korea.
