End child hunger in Africa for $5 billion

According to the World Food Program, we could end child hunger in Africa for just over $5,000,000,000. Why don’t we? The US spends that much in Iraq in about a month’s time. Why can’t Congress, since it loves to spend money it doesn’t have anyway, just aim another drop in their bucket towards Africa? It’s just 5 billion dollars. In governmental terms that’s not a lot.
