Head Of UN's World Food Programme Responds To Elon Musk: This Is How You Can Help Eliminate World Hunger With $6 Billion

The head of the United Nations' World Food Programme (WFP), David Beasley, responded to Elon Musk, who had requested proof that the organisation can eliminate world hunger with $6 billion.


UN's WFP has now prepared a plan detailing how world hunger can be solved. They estimate that a total of 42 million people in 43 countries can be saved from hunger with 6.6 billion dollars.


In a tweet personally addressing Musk, Beasley said:


"This hunger crisis is urgent, unprecedented, AND avoidable. @elonmusk, you asked for a clear plan & open books. Here it is! We're ready to talk with you - and anyone else - who is serious about saving lives. The ask is $6.6B to avert famine in 2022"



The discussion on Twitter started after Beasley told CNN's Connect the World that just a small portion of the wealth of the ultra-rich could help eliminate world hunger highlighting that such individuals have to "step up now, on a one-time basis."

He had stated:


"$6 billion to help 42 million people that are literally going to die if we don't reach them. It's not complicated."



Musk had responded, saying:


"If WFP can describe on this Twitter thread exactly how $6B will solve world hunger, I will sell Tesla stock right now and do it."



Beasly's tweet in response to Musk's stated:


"With your help we can bring hope, build stability and change the future."


He added:


"Let's talk: It isn't as complicated as Falcon Heavy, but too much at stake to not at least have a conversation. I can be on the next flight to you. Throw me out if you don't like what you hear!"



However, Musk hadn't found Beasley's response convincing and asked him to:


"Please publish your current & proposed spending in detail so people can see exactly where money goes. Sunlight is a wonderful thing."
