8.5 million Ethiopians need food aid in 2020  

 

http://www.xinhuanet...c_138587522.htm

 

34 years after the first Live Aid and over 2 Billion dollars later and people still hangry. 

 

And with a population growth of about 3% per year, this is one of the fastest growing countries on the planet.

Did all that aid simply create more mouths to feed?

Ethiopia is definitely a failure of international aid.  When Eritrea split off from Ethiopia, they refused to accept any international charity or aid, because they saw how badly it affected Ethiopia (then they backed off on the non-acceptance policy and accepted aid in infrastructure).  Giving away food to everyone ends up driving the local farmers out of business, because it's hard for local businesses to compete with free, and then the country ends up with fewer farms and with less food in the future.

 

Aid and charity can work, but it has to be done intelligently-- which wasn't the case in most of Ethiopia.

GENEVA, Dec 3 (Reuters) - The United Nations said on Tuesday it was procuring food assistance for 4.1 million Zimbabweans, a quarter of the population in a country where shortages are being exacerbated by runaway inflation and climate-induced drought.

Zimbabwe, once the breadbasket of southern Africa, is experiencing its worst economic crisis in a decade, marked by soaring inflation and shortages of food, fuel, medicines and electricity.

 

This is not going to end well, supporting/feeding a population boom in Africa. You know its fecked when the Breadbasket of Africa can't figure out how to farm.

But it's a climate change induced drought so, really, it's white people's fault. At least according AOC.

Except they won't starve. The West will step in and feed them. So instead of learning to provide for themselves, they will expect others to feed them. And they will breed like rabbits forcing the West to send over even moar support.

 

Rinse. Repeat. 

 

Rember Chillrens, it's been close to 40 years since LiveAid. And the problem has gotten worse, not better.
