A spiritual response to drought and famine

The famine in the Horn of Africa is ravaging (see “World Bank steps in to help an overwhelmed Kenya,” The Christian Science Monitor, September 2). In Kenya, where I live, it is estimated that close to four million people are faced with starvation. Many have died, livestock and animals have been wiped out, and the pictures of suffering are disconcerting.

Nevertheless, in the true spirit of good neighborliness, Kenyans have made donations big and small to help ease the effects of a drought said to be the severest in more than 50 years. Other donors have included foreign governments, UN bodies, local and international NGOs, and many more.
