Famine in a Land of Plenty

Malawi's strategic grain reserve is sold by the state to private speculators just ahead of a bad harvest. The consequences are fearsome. An object lesson in all that is wrong with foreign aid in Africa.

February 2003. Across six countries in southern Africa, nearly 20 million people suffer on the brink of severe famine. Malawi is the second most seriously affected country, following closely on the heels of Zimbabwe: 6 millions Malawians have nothing to eat, and 3.6 million survive by complete dependence on massive food aid distributed by the World Food Program of the United Nations.
