Without food and water, animals...

There was no rainfall in southeastern Ethiopia and the land dried up across the entire region.  But today there are signs of recovery.  Pastures, previously cracked and barren, are slowly sprouting new growth and animals are grazing and...

    One Year Later: Helping Children Survive in the Horn of Africa
    By - Bija Gutoff - Senior Writer/Editor
    You might hear it called a “slow onset” emergency because, unlike the sudden strike of an earthquake, drought builds gradually. But don’t bother telling that to the mothers whose children are hanging on by a thread; slow isn’t the word they would choose. Grueling, they might say. Nerve-wracking....
