US To Give $100 Million to Somalia

somalia, black global news, black news

The Somalia famine crisis is considered to be one of the worst humanitarian crisis in decades.

According to U.S. reports, over 29,000 children 5 years of age or younger have died within the last three months. The United Nations stated that close to 700,000 Somali children are considered malnourished, which will probably add to the death toll of small children.

Unless immediate relief efforts arrive, hundreds of thousands of Somali children could die, a U.S. official stated. Washington, however, is planning to announce $100 million in aid.

Jill Biden, the wife of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, recently visited the East Africa region to talk about awareness and to raise funds.

“What I’m asking is for Americans to reach out and help because the situation is dire. There is hope if people start to pay attention to this.”

Only 20 percent of aid is actually reaching the almost 3 million Somalis who need it, stated Mark Bowden, a top U.N. humanitarian official for Somali.

Another humanitarian official, Kiki Ghebo, said that more than food for hungry Somalis is needed. Vaccines for medical purposes, plastic sheeting, and cooking utensils are also of importance.

Islamist insurgents have been making it difficult for Somalis to receive aid. Recently, there have been several gunfights at various distribution centers. At least 10 people were killed.

One million to Somalia is a pittance. It can be compared to giving us a 400 dollar stipend (from money they took from us in the first place). It can be considered as a false act of generosity. Somalia and Haiti both need billions!!! America is represented by the 200 million whites who own it and who continue to discriminate and abuse the "blacks" here. The Anglo-Elite are the scoundrels but they usually get the full backing of the majority of the white society. That should alert thinking people that any African nation is not truly favored by "America". What they are doing is bidding time until they can annihilate the people and steal whatever is not tied down as is their usual modus-operandi.

One million is a mere drop in the bucket. And make note that the Anglos have always pillaged African nations! They took South Africa and Australia straight out, and many European powers have long colonized African people and stolen their resources etc. So WTF!!! If you don't know now you know!

Spend one more dollar on unnecessary products and you continue to buy poverty and death for mankind! Keep praying and believing in the white man's 'God' and religious system and you are guaranteed to pass ignorance and misery down to your children.
