If you have been watching this space, you have seen my buildup to the famine that is happening in Malawi. First there was an article warning of what is to come, then it George told me about his family's village and how they are scrounging for roots in the forest to eat. Now 29 orphans have died because they didn't have any food. This is happening close to my house, and I feel guilty about it. I wonder how the rest of the world feels?
