Already, 10 million people are in urgent need of food in Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya and yesterday the United Nations declared its first famine in 27 years for parts of Somalia.

A great interview with a well informed person on the ground level. Unfortunately, a tragic human story that has been in the making for some time and complicated by government and regional politics.IRC does a great job in unimagainable circumstances.
