UN asks billionaires to help world's starving

UN food chief David Beasley called on the world’s billionaires to help save some 30 million people he said are at risk of dying if they don’t receive help from the World Food Programme.

“We need $4.9 billion to feed, for one year, all 30 million people who will die without WFP’s assistance,” Beasley said, noting that there are some 2,000 billionaires with a net worth of $8 trillion and several made billions during the pandemic.

“It’s time for those who have the most to step up, to help those who have the least in this extraordinary time in world history,” Beasley said. “The world needs you right now and it’s time to do the right thing.”
