1 in 4 children are hungry in the USA daily; 1 in 7 children go hungry daily throughout the world. The earth produces enough food to feed 10 billion people annually, which is more than enough food to feed the world’s population 1.67 times over. The question remains to be answered, then why are people still starving, and in many instances starving to death in 2014?
Finding solutions to this problem, of epidemic proportion, is where JHF, WBP and BFC join forces to plan and develop strategies to turn this trend around. “I am happy to be working with WBP and BFC to “Stomp Out Worldwide Hunger” and find a viable solution to the clean water issue facing many poorer countries of the world”, said Joshua Williams, President and Founder of Joshua’s Heart. “This partnership allows us to work with ambassadors from around the world that participate in all the United Nations Pageant Divisions under the World Beauty Pageant system. I look forward to our teams making a difference for humanity”, he added.
“WBP and BFC is excited to work with Master Williams and his organization to help assay the many issues facing 3rd world and 1st world economies and develop an action plan where our delegates can make a difference in their home countries. Our Mrs. South Africa United Nations Queen, Suzann Botha, will be very instrumental in working with JHF and BFC in finding solutions for South Africa and the many African nations who struggle daily with hunger and clean water issues”, said Leon Williams. “Our delegates have taken a keen liking to Master Williams and the many lengths he has gone to, to alleviate hunger issues in the US, our joined efforts can only help him with his mission to stop hunger and build on empowering people to be self-sufficient. Mrs. South Africa will be in stopping in Florida to meet with young Master Williams prior to coming to the final coronation for the2014 pageant which are being held July 1 -7th in Kingston, Jamaica. It is the beginning of a brilliant alliance and we are ready to make a difference one day at a time”, he continued.
Mrs. South Africa will be here from June 28 to the 30th. She will be meeting with the JHF before going to Jamaica and she is available for interviews while here.

World Beauty Pageants (WBP) The mission of the United Nations Pageants is to give men and women worldwide the opportunity to come together in a pageant setting regardless of their background and build relationships with others who are working diligently to leave a positive impact in their communities. As the United Nations delegates come together and share their community volunteer projects, ideas and goals, they become unified as pageant brother/sisters in the United Nations Pageants Family. This sister/brotherhood strengthens them to see beyond their immediate surroundings and situations and extends their service across the globe. As each delegate shares ideas of how they serve their community, they and all whom they meet will be strengthened and edified because their paths have crossed.
