Famine in Africa

Posted Aug 12.2011

Right now, as a result of one of the worst droughts in 60 years caused
by extremely poor rainfall in East Africa (also known as the Horn of
Africa) an estimated 12.4 million people are in immediate need of
humanitarian assistance, with the number at risk growing daily. The
countries affected include Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.
Women and children are the most severely affected, with one U.S.
source estimating that 29,000 children under the age of 5 have died in
the last 90 days from the famine.
