Do billionaires have a responsibility to help solve world hunger?

Hub Headings Thinking Question Thursdays.png

David Beasley, director of the United Nations' World Food Program, has called on a small group of ultra-wealthy individuals to help solve world hunger with a fraction of their money.

(Billionaires need to) step up now, on a one-time basis...$6 billion to help 42 million people that are literally going to die if we don't reach them. It's not complicated.

David Beasley

Beasley suggests that people such as Amazon owner Jeff Bezos and Tesla boss Elon Musk could help. Musk has a net worth of nearly $289 billion, according to Bloomberg, meaning that Beasley is asking for a donation of 2% of his fortune.

    Think about it. Billionaires could solve world hunger several times over, donations, both cash and food, have had an immense impact on world hunger. They do not exactly have a responsibility they should just lend a helping hand. But people as a whole can help themselves by;
    Food Donations, Urban Farming, EMPOWERING WOMEN, Birth Control Education, Government Intervention, Social Change. These are just few things we can do to help this problem.

    My answer is that billionaires do not by law, have no responsibility to help solve world hunger but they are morally obliged to help people because they are more privileged than others and I feel like that is why there are rich and poor people in the world. The reason is so that one can complement the other, the rich can complement the poor. We all depend on each other to survive.

    My answer to this question would unfortunately be "NO" and this will be backed up with the following reasons of mine;
    1)It is their money; Billionaires have been able to acquire all their money through hard work I believe and they have the right to do whatsoever they want to do with the money. If they choose to help stop world hunger, then fine, otherwise, we cannot impose it on them as a "responsibility".There is no intrinsic obligation that comes with making money. Regardless of how large of an amount you’ve made.Like all other people, billionaires get to call the shots regarding the destination of their money and we cannot tell them what they can and cannot do with their money.
    2)We are not trying either;We’re just as “guilty” as those billionaires. Most of us have money to spare, and we often choose the $100 t-shirt over donations or sandwiches to give away. Change begins with YOU so if we really want help from those billionaires to help stop world hunger we need to contribute in the smallest way we can and not just sit around waiting for "rich people" to help us first.
    3)What is the government doing?; If we think about it, ending world hunger is actually a job for the government of the country because the government, I believe controls everything that goes on in a country which is why the government is in the best place to solve world hunger.Governments can spend public money on programs like farmer education or school meals and also grant people living in poverty food vouchers or cash to buy food, or to ensure everyone has a basic income that allows them to cover their fundamental spending.

      I cannot agree with this.
      The billionaires of our world pay for a more expensive lifestyle, and still have the money to save. Poorer families will still help charities through volunteering in events (I should know since I do this thrice annually) though will spend a much larger percentage of their earnings on the bare necessities. Asking the poorer families to contribute first when they struggle to feed themselves, clothe themselves and pay the bills is incredibly closed minded. The richest of society don't have an obligation to support those who can't feed themselves, but if "change starts with YOU" and you struggle to save your earnings, then you're simply shaming those who can't escape the working class.
      Regardless of attitude, those with billions in money spend much more time doing what they enjoy since they aren't working to support themselves. This is the comparison to make, not where the change comes from.

    My answer to this particular question is YES . I believe that billionaires can stop hunger.
    The reason why billionaires can stop hunger is because, since they earn a huge amount of money, they can help the citizens of the country by providing different tools and equipment necessary for agriculture to take place.
    I believe that the main reason why people suffer from hunger in the world today, is because the rate at which different countries import food stuffs is at an alarming rate which should be looked unto. If countries cultivate the habit of of farming different foodstuffs there would be no hunger because the food items would be cheap when purchasing it, and also the rate at which individuals by foodstuffs would not be of a disadvantage.

    It is not their responsibility and it is not forced because
    1. Most of the wealthy, but not all of them, suffered a lot in order to get money and lived a difficult life in their childhood, which encouraged them to work hard and improve their living situation and started from scratch by working on themselves and improving their conditions.
    2. The poor must search for job opportunities and work hard to provide the necessities of life, but we should not forget that there are homeless children who cannot work because of their young age, so benefactors must help them.
    But how nice it is to help others, we are not obligated, but if we have humanity and conscience, we will help as much as we can and I am one of the people.

    My answer is it depends on the billionaires themselves. The country can not oblige them to donate to by force, instead it makes them aware of the starvations around the world so they can provide a help in a way or another if they like to. The government impose taxes on their work and get financial benifits out of the bussiness of those billionaires to build the country. The billionaires are preferred to fund the projects that introduce different types of support to the poor people and that is based on their ability and desire.

    I do not stand with one voice,

    1_ Well, money does not come from sitting idly by to get money, you will suffer a lot to get only one dollar and in the end the world comes and says hunger in the world falls on the shoulders of the rich because they have boredom!! No, this is not their duty.

    2_ But from another point of view in my Islamic religion, God has imposed zakat and charity on the rich, which is obligatory for every Muslim who owns money, and zakat was imposed to purify the benefactor from miserliness, bless money and spread love and affection among members of society. My answer is [If your religion imposes zakat, my answer will be yes, and if you follow a religion that does not impose zakat and donation, there is no sin on you.

    This is your personal freedom and not your responsibility to starve the world].

    My opinion is that Billionaires do not have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because no one can force them to use their own money, which they have lawfully earnt, to donate to charity. However, world hunger is such a large problem it cannot be ignored. This is why I believe the government should raise a tax, stating that billionaires have to donate at least 2% of their income to food charities.

    1. katie.jpg Katie @ Topical Talk
      perceptive_goat's comment 07 Apr 2022

    Let's be realistic. Billionaires can tackle the hunger disaster in the blink of an eye and without any effort. It is true that the wealth they have accumulated from their efforts and hard work will decrease, but at the same time they will spare the lives of thousands or even millions of people who sleep with their stomachs empty, yes it is not their responsibility to help people, but remember that what distinguishes humans and raises them from other creatures are feelings and humanity, so they must To feel the suffering experienced by these poor people and contribute any amount of their wealth to plant a smile on their faces

    My opinion is "I'm not sure"

    I said this because I have two different opinions about it.
    First: Yes, billionaires have a responsibility to help solve the problem of hunger in the world, because if we think a little and say that the rich people certainly are the owners of factories and they use a lot of fossil fuels and therefore they put out carbon dioxide in huge quantities and therefore it will affect the problem of climate change and it can happen fires or droughts Which leads to the disruption of agriculture and consequently the lack of agricultural production leads to famines, what I mean by my words (that the rich caused famines through their use of fossil fuels, which affects the problem of climate change that affects agriculture and therefore the lack of plant production causes famines)

    Second: No, the billionaires bear the responsibility of helping to solve the problem of hunger in the world, because imagine that all your life you are tired and you do not sit with your children much because work occupies all your time and you do not eat well and do not go to visit your friends and relatives and come back from work at the end of the night very busy and then sleep An hour or two to go back to work, and every day like this, and after two years you become one of the rich people, and a decision comes to you that you must help solve the problem of hunger in the world by paying part of your wealth, in your opinion, is this fair? Is the person who gets tired like the person who does not get tired in this society, is the person who wastes all his time working and striving to reach his goal, like the person who does not look for work and waits for help from the rich ? As the saying goes, “He who sows will reap.”I have tired a lot in my life and therefore I will reap all my labor and not allow anyone to waste it.

    I think that Yes they have. But, instead of giving them fish, they can tech them how to catch. For example, they can help them build their own work however simple it is because we are all human and anyone could be broke oneday, even millionaires.

    07 Apr 2022

    Most millionaires are businessmen they can contribute to eliminate starvation in developing countries by improving their production by establishing factories to exploit the raw materials available in those countries and employ their youth, thus reviving the economy while also benefitting from them or corrying out charitable projects by donating and encouraging donation of money and food to end starvation and suffering of many families and children all over those countries.

  • British Council.jpg open_construction | Shohour High Public School | Lebanon
    07 Apr 2022

    My answer is certainly yes. Billionaires can reduce the problem of starvation, with their money they can do the impossible for the hungry people who are looking for a livelihood. They can provide financial assistance to farmers for the agricultural sector activity in which the majority of poor people live.

    1. Ericka Shin.jpg Ericka @ The Economist

    My opinion is that Billionaires do have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because Billionaires have extra money besides the amount needed by an average man to live. So, this extra money can be donated ,for once, to help the needy ones. Also their income is so good that they can gain the donated amount back in very less amount of time.

    My opinion is that I'm not sure

    I have said this because
    •1 we should not interfere in their affairs and their private money - (and they have the right to refuse) - because they worked hard to get it and maybe they were - (some of them) - like people who can't even buy a piece of bread, but they have become like this.

    •2 They must help people as something innate in them, they have a lot of money and may not need some of it, if they do this, it will not only benefit the hungry people but the entire globe.
    (The famine and the diseases resulting from them and unemployment for example will end)

  • British Council.jpg considerate_dolphin | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    07 Apr 2022

    After thinking about it for a long time, the answer will be "yes" and "no" as well -this crisis could be solved if some billionaire celebrities donated 5% of their wealth,yes , Like Elon Musk donates about $6 billion of Tesla stock to charity a few days after his participation in the US Food Program . Also, the Arab Abu Fella is not considered a billionaire, but he built artesian wells and rescued some people who were suffering from starvation. however I said "No": because money belongs to them, and no one can force them to do so ,but they can donate to purify themselves and gain people's love and more money as well.

    Yes, billionaires bear this responsibility, and from the stories I heard that a group of rich people went to help poor people, and after they helped them, a small child hugged one of these rich people, and the reaction of the rich was (Honestly , I never felt happy in My life, like the happiness I felt when the child hugged me) . Also, the world is in danger that it is not a time to sit and show off, they should feel for others and help them, it will not affect them much, donating to help the poor will not consume a tenth of his money, and imagine that all the rich people in the world donate an amount of their wealth, we will get the amount Desire and more, and thus also, the rich will be good role models for those who follow them.

Also, a vital reason why I am staying they also have a responsibility is because even if they do not want to help but for the fact they have conscience they should be willing to help and make the wold a better place.

        I wanted to share with you a suggestion that could help solve the famine if billionaires contributed to it...
        I remembered the phrase (teach me to fish and do not give me a fish every day), it is possible to establish companies for a specific craft in poor areas and teach this craft to people who want to support their families, then employ them in this company, and give them a certain salary, and thus help us solve the problem of hunger and unemployment, and we will help These places are on the boom.

    My opinion is that Billionaires do not have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because billionaires have the right to spend their own money the way they deem fit and aside this, based on an article I read from the guardian, barely a fifth of the donations given by billionaires actually go to people who actually need them(poor people or people experiencing food scarcity) instead, most of these donations are channeled towards areas that don't really need them such as arts, sports teams and other cultural pursuits. The individual donations of billionaires around the world cannot measure up to the funds that could be generated if each and every middle class individual who has spare money donates and we also can't ignore the fact that aside monetary aid the average person is ten times more likely to actually work in humanitarian organizations than a billionaire .

    08 Apr 2022

    My opinion is that Billionaires do not have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because it is their money and they should choose how they will spend it because they earned it themselves, and even if billionaires agree to donate money, we should not just leave them to donate money alone, we too can raise money to solve world hunger if we so wish. Those vested with the responsibility and duty to solve world hunger are the government and not billionaires because billionaires too are citizens under the government and they pay tax which is to be directed to things such as this.

  • British Council.jpg sceptical_crow | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    08 Apr 2022

    I cannot determine my answer for these reasons:
    1- The difference in the strength of human feelings from one rich person to another. And some of them have a big heart that does not rejoice and does not enjoy anything except when they see others happy, so they seek to donate themselves without asking others, and among them are those who do not care about what others are going through, and they refuse. The idea of ​​donating and helping.
    2- How to request donations. You can request donations in the form of coercion. This makes the rich feel that they want to control his money, and that he has no control over what he does with his money. And some of them ask in a way that makes them feel that they have complete freedom to make a decision and are not forced to do anything, and that may be a reason for their donation.
    3- The spread of some institutions in some countries responsible for collecting donations that take the donation money for them and do not perform their true function. This has led to the reluctance of many wealthy people to donate and their laziness in doing so, but there are those who have reliable institutions that are able to put money to donate. With all confidence, this thing encouraged them to donate and made it easier for them.

    Do billionaires have a responsibility to help solve world hunger? no ; Because money alone is not enough to end the hunger crisis in the world! As the journalist Tariq Al-Shami, who specializes in American and Arab affairs, said: The donation of six billion dollars is staggering, but the causes of poverty are many and difficult to treat! Because "Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos" are the two richest people in the world by moving quickly, even for once, to help solve the problem of hunger around the world, by donating six billion dollars to save 42 million people who are waiting to die of starvation unless relief efforts reach them. This means that they are not responsible, 2- we should not interfere in their affairs and their own money - (and they have the right to refuse) - because they worked hard to get it .

    I think that Climate change creates hunger and causes problems for millions of people.This is important headline because its effects contribute to the cycle of poverty in several other ways including disproportionately affecting women, creating refugees, and even influencing conflict. climate change whether through drought or flooding has the power to push people into poverty.
    It is important to say that
    many of the world’s poorest populations rely on farming or hunting and gathering to eat and earn a living — So when climate change or natural disasters (including the widespread droughts caused leave millions of people without food, it pushes them further into poverty, and can make recovery even more difficult.

    Hunger is on the rise and children are losing their lives, so they certainly have some responsibility to contribute even a little! It is a humanitarian act, and it saves the lives of many people from death and disease.The international community as a whole must unite to address these crises that will soon spiral out of control and cause disasters.
    For example, the problem of hunger here in Gaza! As a result of the daily air attacks that were launched against us, the hunger crisis was exacerbated, homes and shops were destroyed, and many families lost their shelter and food,According to this, the American Zakat Foundation is present in the field in the Gaza Strip, providing food for about 1,000 families a week in partnership with the Palestine Children's Relief Fund (PCRF).
    Yes, this will not completely reduce the problem with the presence of the occupation and siege on us, but it will save us and keep us alive!

    I have said this because these billionaires have a tone of money and they don’t need all of that as they have way more than enough to survive so if they do I don’t see why they can’t give a bit to charities and people in poverty to help them survive this extremely tough time.

    Unfortunately, my answer to this question is "NO," and I will explain why in the following paragraphs:
    1)It is their money; I believe that billionaires earned all of their wealth through hard work, and they have the right to do anything they want with it. If they want to assist end world hunger, that's good; otherwise, we can't make it a "duty" for them. Making money does not come with any inherent obligations. Regardless of how much money you've earned. Billionaires, like everyone else, have the freedom to choose where their money goes, and we can't tell them what they can and can't do with it.
    2)We are not attempting anything.

    Billionaires, in my opinion, have a responsibility to assist end world hunger.
    I've mentioned this because billionaires have more money than the normal guy needs to live comfortably. So, for the first time, this excess cash can be contributed to those in need. Furthermore, their income is such that they may recoup the contributed funds in a short period of time.

    My answer is yes but we do not consider it a responsibility because we will become that we force them to pay money to help these poor people. When giving this money to the poor, it can be considered forbidden money because then these billionaires are forced to pay the money with the word "responsibility".

    From my point of view, they will be rewarded for donating money to the poor, especially in the blessed month of Ramadan, meaning that they will make the hearts of children happy when they wear new clothes like other children, that is, when they give money to their families. Also, donation is a beautiful thing and increases reward with God Almighty.

    From my point of view, it is not the responsibility of the billionaires, but they must give these poor people money to meet their needs and rid them of poverty and hunger. And whoever does not want to give money, there is nothing wrong with it, as we do not force them to give money.

    I believe that this world has to be fair, with no difference with people, but what we see here is that there are people who are above the sky and people who are below the land, and what has to be mentioned that every person on this planet is meant to live a life full of prosperity and wellness. I think this problem is too similar to gender inequality where women in gender inequality are not given their rights and not being equalized by men to live a good life as them, same here in this issue where poor people don't have even some money to buy bread, while those rich people are living the maximum welfare. Referring to that, although those rich people can't be forced to donate or to help, but what forces them is their sense of humanity because nobody can help a human except a human, so that they're meant to help and donate at least to make those poor people's stomach full and live a simple life.

    “The gift makes you richer.” Giving money to people whose income is below zero actually makes you richer and raises the level of income, because alms are the basis of happiness, because when you see people happy, you rejoice in their joy because you have a strong brotherhood bond with them, but I am not sure, no, this is not a condition for Billionaires unless they want a happy life filled with psychological comfort, because when you donate, you increase your income and not reduce it, because there is no shortage of money from charity but God increases it with a lot of sustenance, so donating to meet a need is a wonderful thing that people benefit from to improve the standard of their lives.

    To my opinion, I think billionaires who are people like others living in this world and asking for the fullest of their lives have a responsibility to help solve world hunger ,but of course not by pressing them. Billionaires may contribute a big difference to solving world hunger with the support of the state if it is incapacitated to help huner people , and the support of associations specifically in helping poor people.

    09 Apr 2022

    My answer is yes, because billionaires
    have a lot of money,it will not decrease if someone donates a small amount it is also a humanitarian duty for every member of society lf the rich do not help the poor, who will help the poor and needy

  • British Council.jpg honorable_earth | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    09 Apr 2022

    Yes, the wealthy have a role in solving the problem of starvation through:
    1- Donating to poor families suffering from starvation by providing them with healthy food.
    2- The recommendation of the well-known institutions for eliminating famines to count the numbers of people who suffer from starvation and to give them supplies each month.
    3- Also, by providing the poor men with suitable jobs through which they can eradicate starvation and secure their own food.

  • British Council.jpg great_concept | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    09 Apr 2022

    Okay .....
    my answer is no
    First, because billionaires may do charitable work on a personal level that only they know about.
    Second, they are not obligated to do so.
    Thirdly, it is possible to contribute from the state and to participate with billionaires. They cannot know whether it is the category that will die of starvation or those who are just stealing food.

  • British Council.jpg balanced_dolphin | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    09 Apr 2022

    In my opinion, yes:
    1. Of course, billionaires have faced many difficulties in their lives to get to where they are now, and I appreciate this... but isn't it nice to cooperate and support those who need help and donate a little money, for little will not decrease the mountains of their money??
    2. “After the word love comes the word cooperation as the best word on earth.” Bertha von Suttner
    This phrase makes a person feel the value of cooperation and see it as a great thing.

  • British Council.jpg terrific_moment | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    09 Apr 2022

    My answer, of course, will be “No,” because they are the ones who own the money and know how to deal with it. Of course, they will not be forced to pay money to help solve this famine, and none of them was a minor to control it. Also, it is possible that conflicts will spread, and the matter will get worse. Instead of solving it, it has been thwarted I hope they help solve it without forcing them.

    My opinion is that Billionaires do have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because because they do not live alone on EarthHunger kills and kills the world, especially the poor, and causes many infectious diseases, and it may reach a global epidemic that will cause all people without exception, including the billiards. Therefore, because this future or nothing but bad will happen, we must donate some money to the poor and undertake projects that stop the progress of starvation such as agriculture, and then diseases will decrease instead of This can build factories that work on poor human labor and so some will be able to buy the necessities of life

  • British Council.jpg constructive_moth | Rhemaville Christian Academy | Nigeria
    09 Apr 2022

    My opinion is that I'm not sure, I have said this because...

    1. Billionaires have earned their money rightfully, all by themselves and they do not have any responsibility of helping to solve word hunger that comes with making their money.

    2. If they feel morally obliged they will decide to donate the money freely to help solve world hunger without anyone forcing them forcing them to do so.

    3. We are not helping to solve world hunger too, so we should not blame billionaires when they do not help either, some of us have excess money but we do not donate it, it just feels like we are imposing the responsibility of solving world hunger on billionaires just because we do not want to donate our own money.

  • British Council.jpg genius_gazelle | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    I think the answer is yes:
    BECAUSE With their unprecedented levels of wealth, Mr. Musk and his fellow billionaires can now truly seek to eradicate global poverty, end global hunger, stop species extinction, and put developing countries onto a low-carbon, inclusive growth trajectory. I’m also ready to get on a plane (using my own personal funds) to talk to him about what can be done at his convenience. But if the billionaires do not act, I will also be in the vanguard of those advocating for a tax on them, with proceeds earmarked towards improving the lives of the poorest on this planet.

  • British Council.jpg lovely_cloudberry | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    It is not a responsibility, but if they do not give money to the poor and save them from death, who will give the money to these poor people. They better understand that billionaires give money to the poor.

  • British Council.jpg witty_land | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    I'm not sure, I said this because it depends on the billionaire who will help, if they will help maybe they sees it as a responsibility he should do,or maybe do it for good, and I think they will have the love and encouragement of other people.
    If they don't help, it's okay, in the end it's his life, his money and his choices.
    Not all billionaires live the same lives or have the same thinking, we don't know what they went through to get to where they are and we shouldn't force them to do anything.

  • British Council.jpg fulfilled_peach | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    “Not all the time” 1- Because they have no responsibility under the law to help solve world hunger, but they are morally obligated to help people because billionaires are on top of where their money is going and we can’t tell them what they can and can’t do with their money because they shouldn’t We interfere in their affairs and their own money - (and they have the right to refuse and accept) 2- Donating to help the poor will not consume a tenth of their money, and imagine that all the rich people in the world donate some amount of their wealth, we will get the amount of desire and more, and therefore also, the rich will be a good role model for those who follow them And when they give money to the poor, they will feel a happiness they have never felt before!

  • British Council.jpg genuine_memory | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    My answer is yes. I said this indicates that billionaires are linked to the world and the whole family by a fraternal bond that unites them over the years, because in the donation there is a kind of unity and humanitarian support, because when you support them and extend a helping hand to them in a time of adversity, but one thing remains for you from them after you donate to them, your success in your life Because of your happiness for them and their children, which makes them wish you the most beautiful prayers.

  • British Council.jpg fulfilled_peach | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    My answer is (yes) 1- It is true that billionaires have worked hard to collect their money, but donating a little will not hurt! 2. That billionaires are conscientious, that is, they can be willing to help make poverty a better place. 3- If they donate a tenth of their money and become billionaires from all over the world donate some of their wealth, we will get the amount of desire and more, the billionaires will be a good role model for those who follow them.

  • British Council.jpg contemplative_drum | Shohour High Public School | Lebanon
    10 Apr 2022

    No, actually billionaires are not responsible for helping the poor or solving the problem of hunger around the world in any way, but on the level of humanity they should do so.
    We make more food each year than is needed to feed the 7 billion people on Earth. We have trucks, trains, ships and cranes to store and transport the perpetual harvest from all over the world. Plus, our scientists have discovered plants that exceed thousands of species and growing perpetually. So why there are people dying of starvation? And I repeat, they are not obligated to do this, but they can feed thousands of poor people and give them money that will make you start a source of income, they are most likely not stupid and they can find a way to earn income, but often all it takes is to get enough money.

  • British Council.jpg engaging_bell | Jabalia Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    My answer is people who are billionaires. If they help with a small part of their money, that is not something that is important to them and it will not inevitably affect them. As for people with needs, this is a big thing that is important to them. As a matter of belief, whenever they need something of the important things, they find someone to help him. This helps spread cooperation and love, not in short for money. It may be food, clothing, and so on, so you will definitely eliminate poverty and starvation, but one last question, do they deserve that people who need help to help each other and let us be one hand

  • British Council.jpg appreciative_pear | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    10 Apr 2022

    Okay!
    From my point of view, I do not think that it is mandatory, but rather according to their will, and if they wanted to, it would be nice.....
    I would imagine myself as a billionaire and I had a charitable association and the goal of the association was to eradicate hunger and I will support this association with everything I can do and to eradicate hunger because I am a billionaire
    First, food security: ensuring that everyone has access to healthy food every day. And our earth is able to feed us all: people must distribute the food equitably, and leave no one empty-handed!
    Second, sustainable agriculture: the use of fields, forests, oceans, and all the natural resources necessary to produce food without harming the planet. And it must be sustainable because food production must respect the environment, and all the people and animals that live in it, or our resources will not last!

  • British Council.jpg mindblowing_pineapple | State Experimental Basic 2 School | Ghana
    11 Apr 2022

    My answer is No billionaires have no responsibility to help solve world hunger, because is their money with they have suffered to get and no one can show them what to do with it,
    They can prefer to help the poor and also not to help them.

  • British Council.jpg thoughtful_iceberg | Jabalia Prep Girls A School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    11 Apr 2022

    My opinion is that I'm not sure
    I have said this
    Because I prefer it to be optional among billionaires and not compulsory, because voluntary work is always popular.
    For example: some of them want help to win people’s love and help, or to achieve personal interests: such as fame.
    There is also: one who does not want to help out of greed and fear for his money or because there is no compelling reason to donate.

  • British Council.jpg imaginative_world | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory

    In my opinion, the billionaire cannot bear the problem of hunger, but if he wants to donate an amount of money that he contains to contribute to solving this problem, he has the right to do so. Their money, but they have much more money than they need, so it is nice that they donate some money to contribute to the eradication of the issue of hunger, and I also give the responsibility for this matter to the government that governs the country. .

      Where should the government get the money from, imaginative_world - should they increase taxes on the billionaires who live in their countries?

      1. British Council.jpg imaginative_world | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory
        Tom @ Topical Talk's comment 13 Apr 2022

        The government cannot increase taxes on billionaires because they have a lot of money. For example, the government imposes a lot of taxes on many things on the rest of the state, so they must be treated the same. But if the billionaire wants to pay more money than the tax to solve the problems of the state, this is better than them and I think This is a beautiful contribution from them in paying their redundant money to help others and solve the problem of hunger and make the country a developed country, but unfortunately for the most part, the state exempts billionaires from taxes because they are of a high and high position in society, and it is also possible for a state that suffers from hunger to ask for help from a developed country with Wealth or without asking for help assisted by a developed country with wealth.

  • British Council.jpg fulfilled_peach | Shouka Prep Girls School | Occupied Palestinian Territory

    1- I think the billionaires will help those little guys who are almost dying of starvation; Because they desperately need help and because billionaires have a "conscience" giving a little won't hurt.

    2- If they don't help these hungry billionaires, who will help them???

    3. Billionaires are humane and conscientious, and are willing to help make the wilderness a better place.

    I have said this because collectively they can and as billionaires they have more than enough, taking a little out of their very mega resources will in no way affect them. They can help set up businesses, open up more employment opportunities and generally be involved in more positive causes that could help stop world hunger.

    I have said this because well first of all, billionaires have a lot of money and this was made possible by people patronizing their goods and services, now would it be wrong for people with that much money to give just a small amount compared to their massive fortune to these same people; I would say no. Giving a little from their resources will go a long way to save lives and maybe create more opportunities for them to expand their fortune.

    my answer is I'm not sure:
    BECAUSE
    1. Billionaires should get involved but they should not solve everything.

    2.Billionaires are similar to citizens.

    3. Billionaires have enough money to solve it but normal people still has money.
    I am trying to say that world hunger is a big thing so billionaires should help but citizens like me and others can still help.On the other hand, we should not interfere in there money but if they have enough and they do not need some of it, then it would be a great opportunity to spend some on world hunger. We should not force them but it would be better if they saved millions or even billions of people from world hunger. World hunger might sound like not a lot but really it is.

    Yes, I think the rich have a responsibility to donate to the poor.
    They have to feel them, they are human beings like us, and they have to remember that they don't had money one day , or were in a difficult situation, but they worked on themselves development , worked hard at work, or by someone who motivated them, walked with them on the path to success, until they got to this Stage .

  • British Council.jpg grateful_map | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    11 Apr 2022

    My answer is...Yes
    I think that it is possible that one day this will happen to them, and they lose all their wealth, so it would be good to leave a trace in the life of someone who will never forget this favor, or be a flame of hope and the beginning of this person's prosperity, and be a reason for his success someday.
    we do not know where life will take us and this poor person will become successful and return the favor to the family of this rich man or to someone close to him in the future.
    I also think that a donation would be a nice and beautiful thing for both parties, because it's great to be the cause of someone's happiness and to put a smile on people's faces .

  • British Council.jpg grateful_map | Beit Lahya Prep Girls | Occupied Palestinian Territory
    11 Apr 2022

    My opinion is that Billionaires do have a responsibility to help solve world hunger
    I have said this because billionaires have more than enough to help people who are financially handicapped, they can invest in long term sustainable agricultural practices for example in genetic engineered species of crops whereby people or farmers can breed modern varieties of crops. This will help reduce crop losses caused by diseases, produce more food, increase the income from agricultural produce, provide more opportunities to reduce hunger and also reduce the financial aid sent to hunger challenged countries.

    In my opinion, billionaires do not bear the responsibility to help end hunger; Because if they ask themselves why do we donate our money and no one among the ordinary people does to help the hunger in the world like we do? But there are many people who donate money to the hungry, including: "YouTubers Abu Fella" who collected money with 28 hours of continuous broadcasting on YouTube to help Syrian refugees. But it is nice to donate a tenth of their money to contribute to the eradication of hunger so that they become role models for others, and do not forget the many people who contributed to the laughter of a hungry little child!!!

    I have said this because If billionaires invest more in agriculture, this will help stop hunger the profits will be used to settle humanitarian needs while the funds are returned back into the business to help in continuity of business.

    In my opinion, i believe that billionares are not reponsible for poor people, since billionares were one day people with 0$ bank account, but they educated, graduated, worked really hard and stayed up nights, just like Elon Musk he's the most successful and rich man, but if we look at his background he went through really tough times to earn all that and till now he stay up nights sleeping in his company. On the other hand, billionares must have the sense of donating for poor, like what could a person do with 200B$ alone? In order not to flip in a way of wasting money and decreasing the currency rate, since as the number of currencies increase with no use its worth decreases.
    Plus, if we refer for humanity values, they say that one for all and all for one so we can go from this point.

    I have said this because billionaires can help support local economies by helping to address the development aid issue.

If billionaires do not come on board to help stop world hunger, there is a threat of a wave of hunger sweeping over the world.

    I have said this because it’s not really their job, just because they have more than enough money does not make it their responsibility; It can and should be everyone’s responsibility even if it is a just small part of your money, we all need to make a contribution to this noble cause. So if this call is solely left alone for the billionaires, where the world relies mainly on charity, we will create a future generation with resources even smaller than what we have now.

    First: The billionaire has studied to succeed, works, works, and works a lot to get this huge amount of money to achieve his dreams and goals.
    Second, they are not obligated
    Third: Poor people must research and strive to work in anything in order to take the salaries of their work that benefits them.
    Fourth: The state and its head must inspect the conditions of its people in a correct manner, and no error occurs.
    Fifth: Giving people living in poverty food vouchers or cash to buy food

    My answer is maybe, imagine you where a billionaire and you maid your money through honest means and suddenly your in the limelights and the whole world expects you to solve any problem because you have the money, they fail to forget that we all have duties and responsibilities to family or other people but because you appear to have it all they just assume, sometimes even if you help some people may say your showing off or its fake that you just want recognition. .
    Another billionaire may decide to help maybe they have faced she situation and knows what its like or they are just willing to give and make the world a better place they should be given an opportunity to make their decisions in a way it favours everyone not that the problem should be made to look like their responsibility.

    The problem of hunger in the world is comprehensive for the entire world, so everyone must help in order to be able to suppress this dangerous phenomenon. It is also the duty of billionaires and the owners of the aristocracy to help and support people to overcome this difficult stage of their lives, as if we confine ourselves to wasting money on what is not With interest, we can make a world free from the idea of famines, and if every billionaire donates 5% of his wealth, the matter will not be different, while we all have to contribute to curbing the phenomenon of famine because it is a bad phenomenon and can have harmful effects on society and its residents

    12 Apr 2022

    My answer is yes, although I know that the rich collected their money through misery and fatigue and that no one forces them to donate their money. The reasons that prompted me to choose the answer yes are:
    1) The responsibility to reduce the famine crisis is a collective responsibility that everyone should share in its solution
    2) If the wealthy donate a little of their money, this will not be missing a lot
    3) Wealthy owners of companies can hire people who have experience in their companies, so people can save money permanently and meet the requirements of life. They can also educate people and give them experiences to benefit from and build their own projects
