Hunger In Somalia

12,000,000 people are suffering across the eastern horn of Africa. 1984's famine in Ethiopia killed 1,000,000. This is estimated to be worse. Over 3,000,000 need 'immediate, life-saving humanitarian assistance' the UN has stated. In 3 months 30,000 Somali children have passed away with another almost 2,500,000 acutely malnourished, with 500,000 on death's doorstep.
