Summary: 

Ethiopia, Wag Hamra, Tsiska village

Pre warning for famine in Ethiopia.
Schoolchildren gathering before going to school. Since the drought the school is providing lunch, in an effort to keep children coming to school, parents would otherwise keep the children at home to join in the daily work and struggle for food. A major factor in the problem caused by the drought is the over population in the rural district of Ethiopia.
