Here are the result of the famine.
The UN has warned that the famine can be spread across the southern part of Somalia, but the necessary help needed to avoid famine, is hampered by the
conflict in the country therefore the problem is getting worse, since the rebels keeps the emergency food and water delivered to the country.
There has been famine in Somalia last month, but the UN chief of humanitarian, Valerie Amos, fears that it is spreading southwards.
Somalia is the country worst hit by drought and famine catastrophe in eastern Africa. According to UN Children's organization UNICEF has 1.25 million
Somali children urgently in need of help to survive.
The United Nations has declared two areas of Somalia for the famine stricken, and it is the first time in this century that the UN has declared
It seems like the FN is taking the crisis very seriusly in this case. Basically what I understand is, that if/when it spread it will go out of control
and maybe the worst crisis they have ever encountered. Even worse than the Sudan famine:
1998 Sudan famine
The famine was caused almost entirely by human rights abuse and the war in Southern Sudan. Despite the Sudanese government claims that only the rebel
groups were to blame, Human Rights Watch blamed the following groups:
The government of Sudan
The Baggara militia
Sudan People's Liberation Army
Dinka warlord Kerubino Kuanyin Bol
The Darfur War
So it seems that we can conclude to begin with, that a lot of the problems is because of us, humans.
