    The number of people affected by hunger globally has risen to 828 million in 2021, according to a United Nations report providing new evidence that the world is moving in the opposite direction away from the sustainable development goal of ending all forms of hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. Nutrition by 2030, when the Sustainable Development Goals are supposed to be achieved.
    Despite the severity of the needs, resources are at an all-time low. WFP requires US$22.2 billion to reach 152 million people in 2022. However, with the global economy affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the gap between needs and funding is greater than ever.
    We are now at a crossroads. In order to avert the catastrophe of hunger facing the world, everyone must cooperate with donor governments, whose generous donations make up the bulk of the WFP's funding. Private sector companies can support our work through technical assistance and knowledge transfer, as well as by making financial contributions. High-net-worth individuals and ordinary citizens alike can play a role, and young people and celebrities can raise their voices against the injustices of global hunger.
    If the necessary resources are not made available, the price for the world will be vast numbers of lost lives and hard-won development gains.
    Economic growth is often the way to help countries out of hunger. Sadly, however, when it is not disciplined and just, it widens the gap between the rich and the poor, leading to more hunger, conflicts, and tension. Development must include vulnerable people and look at society as a whole: it will only succeed when each component is considered an essential part of the whole.

    We know that people are the special ingredient in the recipe for ending world hunger: everyone must take action to achieve this common goal.

    Doctors play an important role in the healtheare delivery system. There is population growth and the number is still increasing. Due to these reasons health care demand is growing at an unprecedented rate . Doctors are required more urgently and in more numbers in some countries.
    I reach to many reasons why there is a physician shortage. The maine one is the mass exodus of the doctors. Around 55% of doctors travel abroad, so the doctor workforce which is active are 50 years old or even more; they are in way to their retirement. In addition, the limitation on medical colleges and residency programs.

    Growing number of patients deal with the lack of physicians. Why? There are many factors for that first, uneven distribution of doctors in impoverished areas,and Inconvenient hours for many doctors especially for women.
    In my point of view, the country must find solutions to increase the number of doctors. For example, increasing doctor's salary.Also increasing the number of medical colleges and reducing student fees in rural and poor areas, thus achieving a balanced number of doctors in all regions.

    I really thank you all for letting me join the topical festival. I have never been in this kind of competition, This is my first time interacting with other people from other part of the country. I have also learn some many things in this topical festival. I joined this festival because I love writing, making project, reading. I really appreciate you all for bringing out the real and new me. It was in this festival I know I can write things on my own without asking my teacher, parent or friends for help. But I thank God I am in this festival even though I have not received any Star. Is it because my comment are not good enough as the others or my English are not as good as others. Please tell me what my problem is.

    Doctor shortages are important cuz the shortage is between 37,8000 and 124,000 physicians within
    The c12 years is how many the U.S. Physicians who can qualify to practice medicine are largely controlled
    linical information system is designed to support clinical nursing practice. It only requires not
    only an understanding of professional nursing but also technology that is the application of science
    to function electronically. Doctors are very important in the world you need them when you get sick
    bad. Doctor Shortage is an effect in the world cuz people have died cuz they don't have solutions
    of a cure if they have a virus or anything bad or contagious.

    The World Cup nowadays occupies a lot of people, as the World Cup has become the talk of social networking sites
    Whereas, as we know, thousands of people went to Qatar to watch the World Cup... As many situations occurred in Qatar, the most prominent of which is the owner of the large-sized hand, nicknamed the Kenyan Abu Al-Abbas.. who uses it as a means to guide people to the metro route using this phrase (metro this way). The site where the young Kenyan sits is popular with fans who line up to take pictures and videos with him....The metro man became famous because of his attractive style of directing fans to the metro station, as the organizing committee of the tournament invited him to go to the England-America match, and he got the opportunity to go down to the field and repeat his famous sentence in front of 60,000 spectators.
    In the end, I want to say that people were able to change the life of Kenyan Abu Al-Abbas and turn it from a humble job in the World Cup to one of the most prominent features of the sporting event.

    Women in Iran are being treated poorly. They can't sing, dance, or laugh. They are being hurt and killed because of these laws. Sure, men have been deprived of their rights in Iran but women are really, really deprived of every right. So they're on the front of the anti-riot police. They're getting beaten up. They'll do whatever is necessary to get their goal, which is the end of the regime and equal rights.


    Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old woman, was arrested for not wearing a hijab according to the rules in Iran. She died in custody. Eyewitnesses believe this was as a result of police brutality, which sparked a wave of protests. But why has the Iranian government heavily restricted the internet? And do people outside of Iran have a responsibility to speak out if those in Iran cannot?

    The protests in Iran are really over the fact that women don’t not have rights and because the morality police are taking over the country. Iran is known for many deaths of protestors, including the death of the twenty-two year old woman Mahsa Amini, whose death sparked the protests. While witnesses say she was beaten several times, the police say she had a cardiac arrest. Annalena Barebook, Germany’s foreign minister, described that others should not ignore it but should stand up to help them.

    Diversity is not being equal, when a person or group of people is treated like the odd one out.This topic is important to me because I know people who have to go through diversity its unfair people who aren't even toddlers yet.

    People with disabilities and people with a different nationality struggle with this and get treated unfairly. Women get treated unfairly people say things like women aren't supposed to have jobs but stay home to cook and clean. Men experience diversity people say they need to have jobs and pay for everything. This world is full of diversity and inequality and it makes no sense. We need to fix this because it isn't getting handled and this will continue and normalize if people treat it normally.

    I think diversity is something that will eventually be normalized if someone does not do something about it now. people won't understand the importance of it if we don't talk about it like we should. Diversity is something that is highly talked about enough. It's also sad that people have to go through with diversity because people will get bullied for it and it leads to devastating things. The point I just wanna get across is we need to solve the problem of diversity and I don't think we can do it without help.
