The majority of starving people live in developing countries, mainly located in Asia, the Pacific, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Starvation is also mostly found in low-income, rural areas. However, hunger has been on the rise in urban areas as well (“Frequently” 2). One of the major causes of world hunger is the significant lack of food security, or the ability of people to have access to healthy, nutritional food at all times, in many areas of the world (Marsh, Alagona 254). Due to this major lack of food security, the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) estimated, “that 25,000 people die each day from hunger [, and]… between 1998 and 2000, there were 840 million undernourished people in the world—nearly a sixth of the world’s population,” (“Hunger” 2).

This occurs when people through away food, during harvest, during storage and when crop is destroyed by pests, insects, diseases and animals. Food wastage in the poor countries is due to lack of technology and infrastructure and result to as much as quarter of harvest getting lost (Global issues, 2010).
What makes the situation worse is that the hunger turned to famine many times and in different places without intervention of human rights activists. One example of this is, in Ethiopia, a widespread famine affected the inhabitants from 1983 to 1985 and resulted in more than 400,000 deaths. This is just one example of disability of human rights organization to meet human needs, and there are many other examples also happened after long time of establishing this organization.
