Kenya needs all the help it can get during its current famine -- almost. An offer from New Zealand to send 42 tons of dog food to feed a starving population has raised hackles.




What the young woman saw in Kenya disturbed her deeply. Upon her return to her hometown of North Canterbury in New Zealand, she told friends and family about the hunger in the eastern African country. Her stories were so heart-wrenching that a friend of her mother's, the dog-food manufacturer Christine Drummond, came up with the idea of sending 42 tons of powdered dog food to Kenya's famine victims.

i heard about that from professor griff in an interview. is that what they think that they are sub-human. just because of the war strife and deprivation that have suffered they would stoop to dog food. it shows the attitude and intelligence of non informed or those not really concerned with the realities that the kenyans are going through. dog food and powered at that they have no decent water to add to it. that is just preposterous. the f'ing aussies.

^^not at all but i dont understand
why everyone is so critical, havent
you ever heard something is better
than nothing, dog food may keep
them alive while our sympathy
cannot feed them

but why give a people dog food when they can give them soil and seeds - they could use their machines and technology to locate water underground and build a line directlt to them - they can bring enough top soil to them - they can bring them cattle - even cans of tuna fish would be better

I had no choice. I guess people were complaining about large signatures and in the end majority rules.

they will fix africa when they find a way to profit off it


if they could find a way to get the farmers to sell out and become factory workers

african economics would pull a 180


i got respect for anybody who would rather choose death than that life

I agree that there should be some other kind
of support going out there besides dogfood,
i do not believe that the people should be
greatful for this however i dont really know
what other aid is being provided to them,
yes i do believe that America is apt to help
when there is something to gain, the fact
remains that this dogfood may keep them
alive, I know all the ideas you guys had are
better than dogfood but its a matter of it
actually happening and as of this point
it doesnt really seem like anyone else is
doing anything for them.

Wow she owns a dog food company...and instead of thinking to use that to somehow generate money to fund food and relief she decides to send dog food?

New Zealander's fuck sheep anyway, don't count on their help.
