MACTV WORLD News: SOMALIA-FAMINE, Posted by Menelik Zeleke




Anisa Osman, a malnourished six-month-old girl with hydrocephalus, rests inside a pediatric ward at Banadir hospital in Somalia's capital Mogadishu August 7, 2011. The United Nations says about 3.6 million people are now at risk of starvation in Somalia and about 12 million people across the Horn of Africa region, including in Ethiopia and Kenya. This famine has occurred due to drought, conflict and a lack of food aid. Hydrocephalus is the build-up of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain.
