If Elon Musk sells just over 2 percent of his huge fortune, the world's ongoing food crisis will be over. The amount is 6600 million dollars. The United Nations World Food Program (WFP) has detailed how the money will be used to deal with the crisis, Newsweek reports. The question now is whether Elon Musk will respond to the call by selling shares of his company.

In an interview on October 2021, David Bijli, WFP's executive director, said: "420 million people worldwide are suffering from severe food shortages. We need 6000 million to help them. "If we can't reach them with help, they could die at any moment." And for that, a one-time donation from billionaires like Elon Musk could be enough, tweeted Bijli.

Tesla's chief executive then challenged the electrician's claim to be true. Elon Musk has asked the WFP to explain to him how the global food crisis will be solved with 6000 millions. If he could explain, he would immediately sell Tesla's 6000 million worth of shares and tweet that he would manage the money.

This time David Bijli presented the WFP's plan to tackle the food crisis. He said that if 6600 million is spent, the ongoing food crisis will be solved. He also gave an account of how much money will be spent in any sector.

The WFP's plan states that the acute food crisis is being exacerbated by conflict, climate change, the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic, and the rising cost of delivering food to starving people. With that 6600 million, it is possible to save 42 million people who are starving in 43 countries.

The plan shows that 3.5 billion will be spent on food purchases and transportation in the areas where the crisis is most severe. After that, in the areas where there is an opportunity to buy food from the market, food coupons of 2000 million will be given. 700 million will be spent on the implementation of the program across the country and 400 million will be spent on various types of administrative work.

The plan shows that if food is served once a day to starving people in 43 countries, the food program can be run for one year in a row and the risk of famine can be avoided. The cost of food per person is estimated at 43 cents.

Elon Musk shared a link to David Bijli's interview on Twitter, which read, "In that sense, there will be a lasting solution to the food crisis." Bijli later said that the matter of interview was misrepresented. He actually wanted to say that with that amount of money, it is possible to save 420 million people from famine.

Now everyone is waiting to see what Elon Musk has to say. Will he sell Tesla shares in response to David Bijli's call to feed the starving, or will he try to find loopholes? Elon Musk, however, has not yet publicly commented on Bijli's tweet.
