Endless Hunger, Famine and Civil War in Africa

The UN World Food Program (WFP) will send an emergency airlift to send food to Mogadishu, Somalia, to aid child victims of famine.

Over the next 10 days, the WFP hopes to fly some 80 tons of food for children, including 14 tons this week according to WFP spokesman David Orr.

So many people are arriving in the city that the ranks of the needy are growing daily, and the program hopes to feed at least 25,000 children, he informed.

    BAD? aspect of WPF:Distribution of low qiutaly food (like: rice) which was/is qiutaly-less product and even animals would die eating these products provided by WFP. Many Nepalese children, mothers and fathers are dying due to WFP careless. I think WFP slogan of caring people without degrading their health has gone to hell. no trust on WHP by now What will WFP do in this case ??? any WFP personnel to answer this This is a very serious issue for me and all Nepal and also worldwide in future.
