The inequality among nations is very disturbing indeed, if we take the time to look at the world, we will see that obesity and hunger exist at the same time. Where some nations are blessed with opulence and excess and people in other nations are living off scraps. The leaders of the world must unite if we are to eradicate poverty from this world. Today we will be taking a look at poorest nations of the world.
