Somalis Continue To Face Hunger 3 Years After Famine

Agence France-Presse: After Somalia’s famine, hunger persists
“At a hospital in Mogadishu’s Yaqshid district, children suffering from severe acute malnutrition, worsened by stomach and chest infections, are receiving treatment that is likely saving their young lives. Three years have elapsed since famine killed more than a quarter of a million people in Somalia –- more than half of them children –- yet for many of the country’s poorest and most vulnerable people the hunger has not gone away…” (McConnell, 5/1).
