Famine in Somalia, Kenya & Ethiopia - DONATIONS
« on: July 27, 2011, 10:41:37 PM »
Folks. I am sure you have all seen the horrific footage on our TV's from the famine in Somalia, Kenya & Ethiopia. The sight of little children to starved and dehydrated that they can't even cry is heartbreaking to anyone, especially those with children of their own. Its also brings to mind that 150 odd years ago we had a famine here in Ireland and I can only imagine the sights must have been just as horrific. To this many of us curse the British for allowing such an event to occur.

With that in mind I am asking that, once again, the members of this board come together and make a donation to assist these poor people. I know times are tough for a lot of us but no matter how tough here it can not compare to this famine. So I ask, could people please consider making a donation, whatever they can, to one of the organisations below. If people would like to post a link to other charities that would be fine. I have no preferred charity or allegiance to anyone in particular so choose which ever one you like.

Thanks. Myles.
