Human Needs, Human Rights and Equality

To study human needs, human rights and equality. At the recently concluded World Food Conference in Rome, many of the delegates from the famine-ravaged countries made statements which implied that they had morally valid claims on the food surpluses of the developed countries. They seemed to imply that their hungry, starving people had a human right to those resources necessary to sustain life and since the developed countries were in possession of a comparative abundance of these resources, they had a moral duty to donate them. Study will focus on this problem and related problems, i.e. we have a moral duty to those whose suffering we did not cause?
