Unser Kollege Steve McDonald aus Melbourne, Australien, ist in Somalia. Steve ist selbst Vater von zwei Kindern. In seinem Blog erzählt er von den vielen Mädchen und Jungen, die vom Hungertod bedroht sind:
Delivering aid into Somalia has never been easy, and no more so than now. Yet, here I am, in Somalia, trying to find out what the situation is really like for children living here, and to see how we can better assist. Earlier this week I witnessed Save the Children staff, hard-working Somalis, delivering urgently needed supplies that will help prevent more children and their families suffering from the debilitating effects of malnutrition. This is work that is about saving lives. Hundreds of thousands of lives.
