The director of Tesla, Elon Musk, asked the UN for a detailed plan of how they would “end world hunger” with the 6,000 million dollars they need and the United Nations World Food Program responded with a proposal.
When the executive director of the United Nations World Food Program, David Beasley, claimed that the richest could save 45 million people at risk of famine, he began a debate on social networks with Elon Musk, a South African tycoon described as the richest man in the world. Recently, Beasley replied again.
At first Musk understood that the senior UN official had said that with only 2% of his assets he could end the famine in the world, for which the director of Tesla offered the money, but on the condition that they show him the detailed plan of how your contribution was to be spent.
To this, Beasly explained that this donation would not end world hunger but it would help these 45 million people at risk of life. In addition, he shared what his office’s plan is for such an initiative.
“This hunger crisis is urgent, unprecedented and avoidable. Elon Musk, you asked for a clear plan and open books. Here it is! We are ready to talk to you, and anyone else, who is serious about saving lives. The demand is 6,000 million dollars to prevent famine in 2022, “added Beasley, sharing a page from his office, where he shows in detail how the resources would be used.
In addition, the senior official made clear the importance of transparency and responsibility when using this money. “They are essential for us and our donors. The financial statements, operational plans, audits and annual reports of the World Food Program, among others, are all public. We have open books, ”he said.
