The aid agency Oxfam has decried the conditions in which hundreds of thousands of refugees from the conflict in Somalia are being forced to live. It says the overcrowded and badly managed camps in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya are "barely fit for humans"

Oxfam is a distinguished agency that I trust implicitely. Our country brags we are the wealthiest nation, therefore it is incumbent upon us to help our those in distress. I'll write my elected officials in Washington to send aid for the betterment of conditions in refugee camps.

I wonder if any camp set up for this type of reason could be fit, in any sense of the word.

It is very hard for some of us whom are helpless, for we can not spare a dime to help them, yet are the one's who seem to be the most outraged, knowing people live in such conditions.

Then it gets ME more angry cause I know for a fact, if a country was treating the non-human animals of the World like this, all of a sudden there would be an outpouring of help and demands that they make changes for the non-human animals to live in better conditions.

Hundreds of thousands of people behind the chain link fences in unsanitary conditions. A very sad story from a very sad place. There has been nothing but hell on earth for these poor sad people since the Clinton Administration. Are they ever going to find peace and relief?
