Hunger is a feeling experienced by animals when the glycogen level of the liver falls below a certain point. The usually unpleasant feeling originates in the hypothalamus and is released through receptors in the liver and stomach. An average nourished human can survive about 50 days without food intake, but only three days without liquids. Hunger can also be applied metaphorically to cravings of other sorts.

A popular term that members of ineptly ruled/managed societies/people like to use to elicit guilt -- and thus, more importantly, donations -- from members of competently ruled/managed societies/people. This bellyaching guilt trip is not confined solely to international communication, however, and is often parroted intranationally (oddly enough, almost exclusively by folks who could stand to miss a meal).
"<Hunger is> what you feel when you dont eat...
the crisis facing the rest of the world...but you wouldnt know if you are american."

"For just $.70 a day -- the price of a coffee! -- you can ensure that <click>gubu <whistle> fafa <click> is fed, and has medicine; won't you call us?"
