RE: [Gabon Discussion] And the beat goes on....China In......US Peace Corps Out
- This is great. Food is the way to begin. What is it in the U.S. that prevents food from getting to all who need it?
Shouldn't this be a no-brainer, given our strong infrastructure, wealth, agricultural means?
What would the FAO policy be for a country like the U.S. which, with all these assets, still fails to get everyone fed?
Kicking some political derriere? It seems that grass-roots org's do a better job than the government, though at local levels.
I get so discouraged: Hungry children in the 21st century.
