Imagine if you lived a nomadic lifestyle, like these Bedouins camped out in the ruins of a village near Kerak, Jordan. Think what it would be like if you had to take your food source with you, everywhere you went. (Click photos to enlarge).
Consider the difficulties of moving not only your family and essential possessions, but goats, roosters and hens as well.
Imagine that without the eggs, milk and cheese from these animals, your family might go hungry.
These Bedouins are nomads by choice. But millions of people around the world are living like the Bedouins, forced by political turmoil, floods or drought to flee their homes carrying whatever food sources they have or face starvation. Some refugees are able to find temporary respite in an encampment run by the United Nations or aid agencies. They don't get to choose what they have for dinner; they're just relieved to have a meal. But thousands of people aren't so lucky, dying of hunger or disease before reaching shelter.
When climate change, conflict or war tip the balance, the safety nets vanish. Together, we can fight famine. Add your voice:
