After hearing about the 40 Hour famine (Vision, 2014) and all the individuals whom are suffering from hunger, it touched me very deeply so I decided to participate to raise awareness.
Cultural factors: How culture impacts on our lives:
An underlying cause I am going to reflect on is cultural factors which I feel have an influence on world hunger, during my reflections on cultural factors I used Germovs Sociological Imagination template (Germov, 2014, p. 7,8) to assist me while expanding on my thoughts and experiences. Cultural factors involve; race, religion, rights, occupation and geographic location. The food crisis is affecting over three billion people which is almost half of the world’s population (Holland, 2013). I am also aware that Muslim men in their family, traditionally eat first and enjoying the largest portions while leaving their wife’s and children to survive on only the left overs (Shah, 2010) this alone would increase the issue of hunger, it is vital that young children receive adequate nutrition for growth development. I feel that most developing countries would not safe for the individuals who are suffering from extreme hunger and inadequate health and possibly a greater risk of cruelty towards those who are weaker, particularly the elderly, orphans and vulnerable children who are less fortunate to having access to nutritional foods (Shah, 2010). The majority of hungry people live in rural areas, mainly in the villages of Africa and parts of Asia, overwhelmingly depend on agriculture for their food supply. These populations have no alternate source of income or employment, as a result many migrate to cities in their search for employment, swelling the ever-expanding populations of shanty towns in developing countries (Program, 2014). After my experiences with hunger and with the knowledge from organizational groups, I could not believe that hunger occurs in the cities of the richest nations on earth and they experience hunger to the absolute extreme. All communities witch live in remote areas suffering from a lack of food and water, have no choice but to travel many kilometres to the nearest feeding centre, to gain access to clean drinking water, medical supplies, education and employment, this would be almost unbearable for the weaken physical state extreme hunger and dehydration causes. Education is another underlying cultural factor, without a career this means no income, which means no money to obtain necessities. I believe the past impacts the present issue, after researching Germovs sociological imagination template (Germov, 2014, p. 7,8) on cultural factors, it is apparent to myself that there are many cultures influencing how world hunger is today, in a number of ways witch I have stated.
Historical factors: How the past influences the present.
Throughout my research I found that historical factors have an impact on world hunger, historically speaking after looking at Germovs sociological template, Germov states...
