Never again: the Charter to End Extreme Hunger

Ministerial Mini-Summit

The warning signs of drought and famine will never be missed again if a new charter is implemented….well, that's according to the people behind the charter.

Drought and famine in the Horn of Africa have killed tens of thousands of people in the past several months.

Many say this disaster, in which millions more are on the brink of starvation, could have been avoided.

The Charter to End Extreme Hunger, introduced at a mini-summit on Somalia at the United Nations, says there are ways to stop drought before it becomes a food crisis that kills people.

Gerry Adams spoke to Brendan Cox who represents Save the Children, one of the non-governmental organizations that drafted the Charter.
