Famine or severe malnutrition is the only time when we humans consider responding to fellow human. That's tragic as it allows us to ignore the suffering of a hungry child or adult simply because they are not near end stage. Mercy and Compassion should spur an intervention to alleviate suffering and prevent fellow human reaching end stage.
It's easy to say a food parcel is merely a handout and is not sustainable. That's true but it's a very cold response to a suffering human. In the absence of an alternative that food parcel could be life saving.
Only those who experienced hunger at some stage in their life would understand that a food parcel is exponentially more than just a handout.
