2.8M Malawians Face Hunger Due To Drought

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Malawi drought brings fresh misery, hunger to flood survivors
“…[M]aize, cooking oil, and legumes [are] being handed out by World Vision, one of a clutch of aid groups responding to an emergency that has left 2.8 million Malawians hungry. Almost 16 million in Southern Africa face hunger this year because of drought exacerbated by an El Niño weather pattern, but Malawi is the worst-hit country with about 17 percent of its population affected…” (Banda, 3/10).
