Of course all of us are aware that many people in the world right now do not have enough to eat. The scarcity of clean water for drinking and water with which to grow food is also an increasing problem in many countries. In the hope that it will be interesting and helpful, the “Stories of Faith” community will from time to time, present links to current news articles or press releases concerning efforts to help alleviate (better yet, to solve) food and water problems under the headline, “Who’s Hungry, Who’s Thirsty?”


Here below, are links to a couple of news items:

(from the website of the U.S. embassy in Pakistan about aid for Pakistanis — including many school children — hurt by rising food prices)


(from the website of the Sydney (Australia) Morning Herald, regarding Sidney’s new desalination plant. This plant forms a major part of the city’s efforts to ensure the water future of its people in times of severe drought).
