Ti mangia la fame (2)

E le notizie di oggi confermano che il grano viene già razionato ora.
E' urgentissimo poter comperare del grano nel vicino Mozambico e sui mercati del Sud Africa, unico paese che riesce a superare crisi alimentari presenti:

MALAWI: Grain Agency Forced to Ration Maize as Food Crisis Deepens

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, September 22, 2005 (CISA) -Malawi's state grain marketer has been forced to ration maize sales in drought-hit parts of the country, as the food security situation worsens, the United Nations Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN) has reported.
At least 4.2 million Malawians, or 34 percent of the population, are at risk of food shortages occasioned by the country's worst drought in a decade, and compounded by the late delivery of fertilizers and seed.
The nutritional status of Malawian children has been aggravated by HIV/AIDS.
Quoting a new report by the Famine Early Warning System Network (FEWS NET), the UN agency said rising demand for maize in southern Malawi has impacted on commercial market prices, leading to long queues for the subsidized grain available from outlets of the Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (ADMARC).
As a result, IRIN said, ADMARC has been forced to ration maize sales to 25 kg per person per day, and sometimes as low as 10 kg.
The rations last less than a week, and maize supplies in the ADMARC markets sometimes last less than a day.
"The fact that this is happening when food aid distribution is underway implies that the volume of food aid being provided is not adequate," FEWS NET commented.
The numbers needing food assistance might increase to 4.6 million as maize prices climb.
Several organizations are trying to remedy the situation. They include World Vision, the World Food Programme (WFP), Britain's Department for International Development (DFID), the European Union (EU) and the Malawi Red Cross.
