Topic (3 minutes of speech)
Nearly 800 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. The vast majority of the world's hungry people live in developing countries, where 12.9 percent of the population is undernourished. Unfortunately, this has led to poor nutrition which causes nearly half (45%) of deaths in children under five - 3.1 million children each year. Despite many efforts by the international community, the number of deaths is increasing in Western Asia. What can you do to help solve this issue? Use specific reasons and details in your answer.
