President Hifikepunye Pohamba declared the drought a national emergency on 17 May after an initial assessment found that 331,000 people were in need of food aid. That figure has since climbed to over 460,000 and continues to rise

Why is it just agencies "campaigning" for water to Namibia? Why hasn't water been flown over there?
Where is their appeal to the world?

Thanks. I wonder, if the Clinton Foundation helping with the any relief.
I would like to know, or petitioning them to help, if not.
I heard of the foundation, but don't know what they do. I think they have focused on medical help in Africa, and aids treatment and prevention.

Keep clicking on water for a day

thanks.
I wonder if the Clinton Foundation has been helping. I believe they do work in Africa on Aids prevention and treatment.
I would petition the Foundation, if not.

Oh, dear! I've met some of the Himba people and although their way of life has always been to cope with drought, this sounds horrible. Hoping for the best....

Sadly this is emergency situation for humans as well as animals. Why has the world not stepped in to help. May God send rains to that region & for crops to start growing. Thanks Jill.

If this country put as much effort into helping those who have no water or food as we do rushing into war there would be few suffering from starvation or dying of thirst. Problem is war lines the pockets of the rich and generates more profits where as helping those who have no food are water cost the rich. TY Jill for posting Noted.
