From where hunger is green

"Amidst the lushness of dark green maize and banana leaves, children in southern Ethiopia are visibly dying of hunger. Ethiopia is facing a hunger crisis, with an estimated 4.6 million people in need of food, 75,000 of which are children with severe malnutrition. The heavy rain falling almost daily came in June, but too late for the first of two annual harvests.

In this nation of 66 million farmers, poor rains, soaring food prices and one failed crop have contributed to a humanitarian crisis of hunger. With food stocks exhausted, the country has once again become dependent on food aid brought in from elsewhere. - July 2008.”
