Paleontologists hunting fossils of early man in the Rift Valley of southern Ethiopia call the area the cradle of mankind. This year it's bursting with life, especially in the fields where local farmers grow barley, potatoes and teff, a cereal used to make the flat, spongy bread injera. As a warm July rain falls on a patchwork of smallholdings half a day's walk from the nearest road, the women harvest yams, the men plow behind sturdy oxen and fat chickens, goats and cows roam outside mud huts. And yet for all the apparent abundance, this area is so short of food that many are dying from starvation.
I would appreciate any donations to benefit the Children that starve everyday in African Countries such as Somalia, Kenya, Ghana, Zambia and many more. I know its a tough Economic time but any Donation amount would be appreciated, Thank you very Much and please spread the word.
