Eradicating Global Hunger is a dire cause in today’s world. According to a report by UNICEF, four out of ten children are facing malnutrition which prevents them from growing at a normal pace and causes many effects on their health & wellbeing. This is just one side of the story, if we look at the other side we find that around 36 million tons of food are wasted annually in Pakistan in terms of food served at weddings, parties, and hotels.
According to a report of the World Food Programme, it is estimated that 43% of our population faces a shortage of food and among these 18% percent faces severe food crisis. This leads to many health and mental issues of the young generation such as malnutrition of children, shortening of bones, children not growing up properly, and most importantly the health of a young mother and child.
Be My Guest – BMG powered by SocioOn, comes up as a solution and need of the hour to eradicate hunger, shelter the homeless, and promote the vision of an empathetic community lifestyle in our society. BMG is a new venture of SocioOn (Pakistan’s National Social Media & Business Network) which highly emphasizes feeding the hungry and sharing food with one another rather than wasting it.
