No child should ever go a day without a meal. You can make a difference.

Hunger. Famine. Starvation. Malnutrition. reminds us, there is no easy way to describe the grim fact that nearly 870 million people on our planet are chronically undernourished. And sadly, so many of those affected are children, whose minds and bodies are denied the sustenance needed to grow into healthy, productive adults. Mona’s current project in Yemen is making a difference by distributing food by it’s own initiatives and collaborations.
In our world today, nearly 16,000 children die every day because of starvation, which is essentially one child every five seconds. So count to five and somewhere a child is now dead, by the time you reach 60 a dozen children will have died from hunger. These children are dying because some of their most basic needs are not being met. Either the family is too poor or they are suffering as a result of war.

FACTS ABOUT YEMEN

Yemen is the poorest country in the Arab world. Half of the population lives on less than $2 a day without access to clean water and proper sanitation. Since the war broke out this March 2015, over families’ income dropped to $1 per day. 41% of Yemen’s population is food-insecure. Each day, a total of 10.6 million men, women and children in Yemen struggle to find their next meal—that’s more than the entire population of New York City. With every passing day this number increases and more lives are put at risk. Famine has become a painful yet remediable reality.

FACTS ABOUT YEMEN

Child malnutrition rates in Yemen are among the highest in the world. Roughly half of all Yemeni children under the age of 5 are stunted, which means their mental and physical potential will never be realized. Over one million children have classified by UNICEF as chronically malnourished in 2013. Playing Yemen humanitarian crisis as a recruiting weapon for radicals, terrorist groups have started to recruit fighters by offering families food and security.

FACTS ABOUT YEMEN

Rural households are hungrier than urban households. More than two-thirds of Yemen’s population lives in remote areas that lack access to markets or social safety nets. Water scarcity and a dilapidated health system has put further strain on the population. One in 5 girls in Yemen are married by the age of 15. School attendance and graduation for women are far lower than rates for male counterparts.…

Types of law

There are several fields of law as discussed below where the law students can decide to practice. Most people would opt for the specialization that they are best in so that they can please their clients. Also, when individuals want a lawyer, they should hire one that has specialized in their area of interest to get the most out of them. Below are some common types of law.

Categories of law

Corporate law or Business law

This law is the type of law that involves the formation, the dissolution and every other legal aspect of the administration of corporations. The job description for corporate lawyers is taking care of mergers, acquisitions, reorganization of the corporation’s internal structure, settling disputes of liability, patents, and compliance with state and federal law between the corporation’s and individuals as well as international accords.

Civil law

The second type of legislation is civil rights law whose work is to create balance in the competing interests of governmental institutions and individuals with A common goal. Lawyers under civil rights law deal with cases that involve unfair treatment of individuals and their discrimination that interferes with rights and freedoms for example housing, education, expression, and employment.

Criminal law

Criminal law is a third type of legislation that has its focus on behaviors that are sanctioned under the criminal code and defined as illegal. District attorneys and the prosecutors punish behavior that is considered illegal, while criminal defense lawyers represent the individuals who are accused of criminal offenses. Both the defense and prosecution have to deal with issues that concern individual liberty, fundamental rights, and freedoms, as well as responsibilities.

Environmental law

The environmental law covers many statutes, treaties, regulations, and conventions based on state, federal or transitional law. Lawyers represent advocacy organizations, government agencies or individuals in cases involving natural resource management, stopping pollution, or problems about land use.

Military law

Military law is concerned with codes and procedures that dictate legal matters in the armed forces. Martial law is based on the Uniform Code of Military Justice since the year 1951. Lawyers who practice military law are members of the armed forces who serve in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.

Family law

Last but not least, family law is concerned with legal relations between individuals who have a family relation. The issues the lawyers deal with include children welfare and prevention of child abuse, the adoption process or divorce in the case of domestic partnerships.…

The functions of law

The functions of law primarily refer to the importance of law. Law is fundamental to each’s welfare. These functions are inclusive of the following factors.

Holding criminals accountable for their actions

Law has worked to prevent the individuals who do not observe the fundamental rights and freedoms of other people from being successful. Everyone has a right to life, a right to own property, freedom of speech, among others. This importance of law underlies the twentieth-century developments in International Law. Such has promoted the creation of the International Criminal Court where criminals who hold positions of power or other influential positions are tried for crimes against humanity. The law holds offenders accountable for their actions

Promotion of the common good

Law has also led to the development of the common good. As much as individuals in the society more often than not pursue their self interests, they should also follow the provisions of the law that prevent this self-interest getting in the way of peace in the entire community. Law, in this case, will help to deal with prisoner’s dilemma situations. Secondly, it will help to distribute property that would be exploited by the public into private hands to prevent a ‘tragedy of the commons type of situation from arising. Law also prevents people from wanting to exert revenge on individuals who have wronged them by allowing those given that authority professionally to fight for their rights.

Resolution of disputes

Law has come in handy in the judgment of conflicts that come up as a result of limited resources. Resources are fundamental in sustaining the lives of individuals in the society. In cases where these resources are not enough for everyone, to ensure that the distribution is done fairly, the law has to be put to use. For example in the story of the ‘ Judgement of Solomon’. An excellent example of such resources is the supply of water.

Governs behaviour

Law works to encourage individuals in the society to do the right thing. A good example is that of Aristotle in the year 384- 322 BC who argued that individuals required the discipline of law to get them accustomed to doing the proper thing. This will help them appreciate the need to do things the right way. Such laws are termed moral laws that ensure people do not act in wrongful ways according to Christianity. It was made illegal for someone to engage in immoral behavior that led to self-harm or offending other people. Provided everyone is safe as per the provisions of the Law, there will be no trouble caused.…
