However, after being questioned by Dr Eli David, a researcher, Beasley said that $6 billion will not solve world hunger but “will prevent geopolitical instability, mass migration and save 42 million people on the brink of starvation.” He added that it is “An unprecedented crisis and a perfect storm due to Covid/conflict/climate crises.”
David had asked Beasley why the WFP was not able to solve the world hunger despite raising $8.4 billion in 2020 if all it required was $6 billion.
Beasley then started tweeting to Musk, assuring him that WFP has a “system in place for transparency and open source accounting,”. He added that Musk’s team can review and work with WFP to be confident about this.
“With your help, we can bring hope, build stability and change the future. 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!” added Beasley.
