ABSTRACT
The article discusses the hunger crisis in Africa. It states that the concept of hungry people being threatened by starvation, with appeals for humanitarian help are as old as the modern African states. According to the United Nations (UN), about 10-12 million people are affected by the worst drought in more than half a century. Factors which have combined to produce the necessary conditions for famine in Somalia are cited.
