'And some wad eat that want it'

Whilst those who should be guiding the world play their greedy, dirty, deceitful games dealing death and destruction with 'shock and awe', and equally greedy people grab as much as they can get of the spoils, one child dies every five seconds of hunger.

There are 850 million chronically hungry people on the planet, and the number is growing by four million each year. Hunger kills more people than AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

Wot u havin 4 dinna tonite?

"Some ha'e meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it;
But we ha'e meat, and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit."
The Selkirk Grace, Robert Burns
