As my grandmother used to say, “The person who has no health has nothing”. Being in good health must be understood not only as the lack of disease, but also as enjoying a state of full physical, mental and social health. Ensuring a healthy life and encouraging wellbeing for everyone, at all ages, is essential for sustainable development.

We have all been hungry sometime, right? Truth is, it’s not pleasant. Thankfully, in our well-developed western environment, this uncomfortable sensation doesn’t last for long, since we always have something to quell it with. The “hunger” most of us know is defined by the English dictionary as “an uneasy sensation occasioned by the lack of food”.

Because, let’s face it, that wouldn’t be as big a problem as to have the UN attempt to put an end to it, right?

We want to “put an end to poverty in all of its forms across the globe”.
