In this video interview by, David Beasley, former Governor of South Carolina, and the outgoing Executive Director of the UN World Food Program (WFP) speaks about his organization’s feeding those in greatest need.  From March 21, 2023.

WFP is providing food aid to 160 million persons, and the hunger needs continue to grow.  Beasley says in the interview:  “I do think the problems we’re facing around the world are quite extraordinary. But, as I tell them, look, there’s $400 trillion worth of wealth around the planet today, and your charity is not the long-term solution. But we are in a crisis mode right now, and we need your help.  But, number two, I need your engagement. Work with us to end hunger around the world.”
