Zambia's Children

Shadow and Light

Africa is experiencing a man made "Tsunami" every day without getting the publicity through the media. One in every five children in Zambia wont reach age five. Many families living on under $ 2 US a day, a lot of them even under $ 1 US a day. Many Charities aren't able to support where and how it is needed. Governments on both ends are making it difficult for the 'ordinary' humanitarian aid worker to deliver the support. Red tape and costs to get donations to the needy are to high for the average person. Without fundraising there is not much what can be done. Poverty and disease are raging through Africa and the ost of the Western World is watching. People from around the world are going on Safaris throughout Africa and spending thousands of dollars to see the "exitements" of the African bush. Where is all of this money going? I do believe there is light at the end of the tunnel, but when do we get there?
