Drought in Ethiopia/You can help

It's not really being talked about in the media but there is a drought going on in Ethiopia right now. This combined with rising food prices is causing starvation in Ethiopia. It's getting worse everyday. Some of the hardest hit areas are in Southern Ethiopia, which is where Abera is from. We feel pretty helpless, and at this point have chosen to donate to Doctors Without Borders. We chose them because of their reputation and because they are working right now in the area where Abera is from. He is from the Tembaro district and they have set up emergency clinics there. I've posted a link to Doctors Without Borders. If I did it right, there should be a video and an article about the food shortage. On their website is information on how to donate. Also, keep Ethiopia in your prayers.
