Each and every time I look around the world a question arises in my mind, "Where is the peace?" People are killing each other, trying to harm one another. But, is it only for power? Is this what Islam teaches us? Is this what we are here for? In Quran Allah (SWT) says; "We sent thee not, but as a mercy for all creatures" (Al-anbiya 107) But what we people are doing completely contradicts the above verse. An expensive watch, car, or any other material thing is worth more tha...

Though we are malnourished, we have a suffer from hunger and poverty, some of use are uneducated, and work underaged, we still have the will and desire. We will come up one day. Happy Children's Day. We observe today in fond memory of Chacha Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the 1st Prime minister of the country. He was born on this day and he loved us.

I took an Environmental Science class last year. We learned that the general global populous of humans will not overshoot and plummet beneath its carrying capacity. Rather, we discovered that food production is not lacking and there is not a real shortage of food product in the world. If you think about it differently, you will see that this global dilemma of hunger is not a function of poor productivity or lack of resources. In the world, if we see it this way, we can assume that...

Stop Child Labour. Often we hear voices from the responsible and hearted people of society. How we can we be the ones who are also kind-hearted and responsible?! Lets talk ... Children do heavy work for the sake of money. The need money for buying food, food for themselves or for their family, and also for some other basic needs like clothes, drugs, school fees etc. Can you imagine this scenario: A 10 year old boy comes to a factory for work because his younger sister is sick and she needs medic...

The recent catastrophe in the Phillipines has affected millions of people around the globe. Yes, I'm talking about Typhoon Haiyan. Children in the affected areas don't have roofs above their heads, nothing to eat, no clean water and no schools. Parents are having a rough time getting things together for their families. I believe it would be great to do our part in helping the victims. Charity, people, charity!! Heartfelt prayers and strength to all of you in the Phillipines. Stay s...

It is typically Malaysian to eat half a bowl of rice and throw the other half into the bin. It seems like it has never crossed anyone's mind that half way across the globe, people are starving to death. Malnutrition is slowly killing them all, not to mention the many other diseases that take their lives. This poverty deeply affects the younger generation, the future leaders. How are they to make this world a better and more sustainable world if they themselves are in starvation...

Climate change is transforming the planet’s ecosystems and threatening the well-being of current and future generations, increasing the rate of food shortage as a result of droughts, water shortage, and high temperatures globally. Ever since the first climate talks in Geneva in 1979, there have been a series of climate talks, yet no profound solutions has been attained. This has driven world leaders and scientist into postulating false solutions to climate change which is rapid...

30% of children in developing countries, about 600 million people, live on less than $1 a day. The majority of these children are under five years old. It would only cost about 25 cents to give every child the essential needs they need to grow up big and strong. About every 4 seconds, a person dies of extreme hunger.

Poverty and hunger is something our world needs to really focus on! Many people around the country are faced with living difficulties due to them not having stable homes and uncooked meals. I believe the only way we can change this is by making a commitment to giving back to people who are not as fortunate as we are. Money doesn't grow on trees! If that was true everyone would be rich! It comes from hard work and dedication to making our lives better! People in poverty don't have t...
