Refugees Of Famine In Horn Of Africa

The situation with children fleeing famine in Somalia is mind-boggling, according to UNICEF’s Director of Emergency Operations, Louis-George Arsenault.

Arsenault has just returned from a week long mission to the Horn of Africa, where a dire humanitarian crisis is brewing.

He was able to visit camps in Ethiopia and Kenya where thousands of Somalis are arriving everyday.

Arsenault gave Jean-Pierre Ramazani a detailed description of the situation there.
