This was posted by my friend James last month from Gulu. This month of April, where we celebrate spring, new life, and resurrection, nearly 1.5 million people are going to starve.

On April 28th, we are going to raise our voices against this in Washington, DC. Watch the video and JOIN US:

The Coming Starvation

I've never seen death so closely. This is an emergency.Next month the World Food Program will be forced to cut its food aid to northern Uganda by half, and this after recent cuts that have left people clinging to life for lack of food. This cut is will put all residents of IDP camps well below the minimum necessities of life. They are going to starve.Unless the world acts.

By my calculations the World Food Program needs about $6 million dollars per month to keep up its current operations. This is not too much to ask the world. So ask. Call senators, write letters to USAID, email the World Bank. Whatever it takes. These people have been through too much in the last 20 years only to be left to starve now.
