From the NY Times:
Much of the Horn of Africa, which includes Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti, has been struck this summer by one of the worst droughts in 60 years. But two Shabab-controlled parts of southern Somalia are the only areas where the United Nations has declared a famine, using scientific criteria of death and malnutrition rates.

Thanks Brant. I’ve been looking for a reputable charity for this horrible situation.
The Horn of Africa requires a massive injection of resources and investment in order to eliminate the endless famine and starvation.
