ABSTRACT
The article reports on a 2008 announcement from the United Nations. In the announcement the organization indicated that 4.6 million people in Ethiopia, Somalia and Afghanistan, including 75,000 children, face life threatening shortages of food as a result of a global food crisis and drought, and that emergency humanitarian aid is desperately needed in those countries to avoid a larger crisis. A discussion of aid which was provided to residents in the affected countries by the World Food Program, and of increased attacks on humanitarian aid workers which have been seen in the countries, is presented.
