While we were playing, suddenly two ambassadors named Emma and David arrived to talk about the 40 hour famine. I was amazed to hear that the 40 hour famine has been running for 40 years now.
Why am I doing the famine?
I am doing the famine because I am part of Bangladesh and even if I wasn't I would still help.
I also want to help because if I was there right now I would be starving, suffering and I would have no shelter. I was very shocked when I heard the people in Bangladesh only have a quarter of food. Image if I had only a quarter of food I would be starving. I remembered when I was little my brother had to carry more than a kg of wood and send it to other towns for money. It is very important to me and my family that I do the 40 hour famine.
How I felt?
I felt really happy doing the famine and helping my country. I also felt really sad hearing how their lives are. I want to help any country that needs our help. Did you know that just ten dollars can change their lives. If you are not available of doing the famine then at least give ten dollars and it will change their lives.
