By: Natalie Opoka             The media I used to create this piece of artwork is pencils, colored pencils, and some sharpies. I call it “rice bowl”. I think its simple yet gets the point across. In the world, hunger kills more people than Aids, malaria, and tuberculosis combined. One in seven people in the world will go to bed hungry tonight. Asia and the Pacific region is home to half the world’s population and two thirds of the world’s hungry people. 65% of the world’s hungry live in only seven countries: India, China, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan and Ethiopia. There are many organizations that help these homeless. Feed my starving children, NAPS, UNICEF, Doctors without Borders, and bread for the world are just a few. I think the world should come together and help each other when we need help.
The reason i made my hexagon the way it is, is because I thought that this image is very strong and will help get the point across. The little boy has eaten in a long time so you can see his ribs. Then he gets a rice bowl from people who are trying to help. The rice bowl represents hope.I put the words feed my starving children on because 1; it’s an organization who is trying to help; and 2 because if people don’t know about the organization they will be pursued to look up way to help. The world’s hunger still is a big issue so people should take action.
