1 in every 6 people suffer of hunger and 1.02 billion people are undernourished in this rich, highly technological world we are living in. The number is so great that it is a greater threat to the human health all over the world, even more than hunger AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis put together. Natural disasters, poverty and financial and economic crisis are among the causes of hunger while the children are hauled to become the biggest victim.

Christina Arguilera a pop diva, lent her voice to WFP and is now an ambassador against hunger after the January earthquake in Haiti. In August 2009 she made a trip to Guatemala and met mothers who struggled and suffered to keep their children nourished and alive. In May 2010 Christina visited the land that was turned into rubles in an earthquake, Haiti and met up with the children.

In raising public awareness and fund for the children in Haiti, Christina Arguilera a world superstar sang on the street of Los Angeles with nothing but a mike stand and a guitar and a guitar casing opened up in front of her,inside was a sign that said "1$ for hope". Singing her hit single 'Beautiful', it was truly her most humble and sincere live performance yet and watching her do it strummed millions of emotions in me.
