Both the famine-hit areas we visited,.
Both the famine-hit areas we visited, Baidoa and Bardera, have airstrips ready to take immediate aid. So does Huddur another badly hit town. CARE, the international agency that specialises in transportation, is planning an urgent programme of relief flights to all three places. It hopes to mount 15 flights a day carrying enough food to feed 500,000 of the most desperate famine victims. The cost of chartering 15 Hercules aircraft, filling them with food and organising distribution on the ground is 6.6 million over three weeks. No charity can raise that sort of cash single-handed. It has to come from the overseas aid budgets of governments. But you can help. No donation is too small when just 4p buys a meal for a starving child, 84p feeds one person for one week and 8.72 is the weekly shopping bill for a family of four. CARE will also fly in seeds and tools needed before the rains come
