The other day I read in the Metro of fathers choosing rather to commit suicide than see their children starving to death.
It’s normal to wonder what type of desperation brings a man to this point bearing in mind that majority of the people in the centre of this calamity are practicing Muslims, a religion which judges suicide as the most abominable act.
There’sonly so much we can do now for the dead , for some it’s too late. But the report from UNICEF says Children and women are the most vulnerable. More than 2million children under five in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia are acutely malnourished,including almost 500,000 children suffering from life-threatening severe acute malnutrition.
This drought in the Horn of Africa, the worst in 60 years is quoted to be affecting over 10 million people. Togetherlet’s give hope to the hopeless and stop the death of these helpless women and children.
We can drive this demon of death back to hell if you’ll stop staring at the mirror and look through the window, please give now.
