Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Food Crisis in Africa

I just learned about a really good webpage on the BBC devoted to the food crisis in Africa.  It has good background information including a history of drought.  It's included not just news articles, but also photo journals, an aid workers diary, and stories of people struggling with hunger, but surviving.  The website features an interactive map of hunger and regional information, so you can learn about particular issues affecting an area like West Africa.  It is definitely worth taking a look and spending some time to explore the site.

Check out BBC's Africa's Food Crisis!

Here's a photo from their photo journal, Struggling to Eat.
