Somalia Famine Claims The Lives Of Over 29,000 Children

Your Black World Reports

A reported 29,000 children under the age of 5 have died in the recent famine in Somalia, according to estimates by the U.S. government. The drought is the worst in Somalia in the last 60 years, and the United Nations estimates that there are over 640,000 small children who are acutely malnourished. They also predict that the number of dead children will continue to grow.

Nancy Lindborg, a U.S. government official who works with ailing countries, said that the 29,000 children that have died have all passed in the last 90 days. The United Nations has declared that there are three famine zones in Somalia, bringing the total up to give. Over 3.2 million out of 7.5 million people in Somalia are in dire need of assistance.

It has been difficult to get support to the people of Somalia because there are al-Qaida-linked militants controlling some of the areas in need of food. Al-Shabab is denying that there is a famine, and won't allow the World Food Program to enter into the areas it controls.

Tens of thousands of refugees have fled to nearby countries in search of food and water.

Now we must ask ourselves, what is in that region that white people want?

Dr. Boyce,

Are we not guilty of stereotyping Africa and Africans when only the bad news stories capture our attention?

The Anglo-Elite have been pillaging and exploiting Africans across the diaspora since forever! They are vile arrogant warmongering devil-dogs. They want everything from everyone but Africans have always been easy prey.

Where is the white man's Obama? He belongs to the Anglos therefore he is not available to help African-Americans or any Africans for that matter!

If you know who is behind the world's woes you understand how they are allowed to go on without any interference. If you knew how powerful these whites are, then you should know that Obama servers at their behest.

I agree WizardG and would ask is the famine killing people or is it the puppets installed by the U.S. gov that is waging war by proxy, once again blaming the previously unheard of AL-xxx (fill in a scary sounding Arab/African name).

This article is pure propanganda, why don't I just go to the KKK or Stormfront website, read, bookmark and post on Facebook, hold up, am I on a Stormfront site?

We African- Americans need to help the Africans.

Ok, MAN DOWN TIME! NO EXCUSES, TIME FOR US "TRUE" CHRISTIAN MEN (not males), in the Church to stand up for the children. I know we have issues here in the U.S.A. with our kids that are at epidemic proportions, but these are spoiled brats for the most part that don't know suffering if it smacked them up against their thuggish heads. These babies in Somalia are truly innocent victims with no one to turn to. MAN DOWN, GET YOUR CHURCH ON THIS. OUR WORK IS NEVER DONE UNTIL . . .IT'S DONE.

Where is the infrastructure that we need to address this problem?
Can anyone name any agencies that we can contribute to the make sure these children are not starving?
Bryce, can you offer any directions or suggestions as to how we can make an impact?
