Im sure everyone has been effected by all too familar pictures of famine in Africa and around the world , the latest being in Niger. The horrible images especialy of young starved children are especialy disturbing. The most shocking thing too me is that we knew nothing about this growing crisis. While everyone was watching the live 8 concerts that were doing an excellent job in keeping Africa in the public eye this horrible crisis was going on without any public knowledge. Surley in the 21st century more can be done too avoid tragedies like this.
I have no time for people that claim aid should not be given, while clearly Africas problems can not be solved by this but in situations like this it is imperitive that is is given.
