NYT 9/8/09 Lush Land Dries Up, Withering Kenya's Hopes
There is a drought in Kenya that is making living conditions very hard for the people there. There is little to no food, a scandal over a corrupt government selling off grain reserves, and delayed international aid to avoid mass hunger. I'm sad for the people there because international help to provide food is scarce since the international relations with the government is tense and that means that nearly 4 million people are going hungry. World hunger is a social issue and so is the negative relations with other countries. It puts my life in perspective to hear stories like this one. Yeah it may be harder to find a job but I'm not going to be going hungry anytime soon.
