A horrific tale, but it is necessary to keep people alert to the state of the outside of their own circles.

The UN has been sadly warning of this for years, why is it not doing something about it? This isn't a surprise children have been dying for a very long time in African continent of genocide, abuse and starvation. That the world looks the other way is what is sad.

The conundrum being the pretense of heartless aid angencies
as if oblivious to the obvious.

Another announcement from the UN. Care, and UNICEF have been asking for money- UNICEF has only received half of it's goal. From whom did you get 120 million? Why don't you start by speaking on the floor of the UN asking for 5 million from all countries able to do so. You will certainly reach your goal.
Christian based organizations like these have strongly relied on private contributions- at what cost? It's time to be proactive while the world starves.

Exactly why more people need to think on a global level, let alone national over just themselves!
