Horn Of Africa: 10 Million People Facing Starvation, According To ACF

July 11, 2011

"Nearly ten million people are threatened by famine in the Horn of Africa, particularly Kenya, warned on Monday the NGO Action against Hunger (ACF), which requires urgent action.

While international humanitarian aid alone is not enough, ACF calls for an emergency response from the Kenyan government and a massive strengthening of international assistance to stem the mass mortality of livestock and the excessive rise of food prices. ACF, which establishes a budget of $ 3.4 million to the region and provides an additional increase of 3 million in 2011, calls for new measures."
