It was a beautiful Sunday morning. I was on my way to church when I saw a little child on the street asking for money. I didn't know why I was upset at first, but then I realized he was too young to be out on the street begging for money. He is supposed to be taken care of by his parents or caregivers. Why does he have to be a victim of our economic and social problems? Why should any child be? I don't want to ask whose fault it is.
However, there are uncountable numbers of children suffering with hunger, and even the U.S., which is supposed to be the richest country in the world, encounters the same problem. From what I've heard, there is enough food in the world to feed hungry children, but that is not the point that I am concerned about. I want to create awareness in everyone's heart that we should be upfront with the hunger situation in children. Otherwise, no matter how much food we have, it's not going to make any difference.
I was upset and frustrated with the situation that I had faced on the street, but I didn't want to feel bad and forget about it. I was willing to do something to help these children. I thought the best and quickest way for me to help was to create a website that contains information about childhood hunger and leads users to various solutions to help children. ChildSupport is a project that tries to raise consciousness in people to support children with hunger.
