Malawi Africa Food Crisis

CHIPUMI, MALAWI - JUNE 29: (MALAWI FEATURE PHOTO 1 of 10) A Malawian woman and two young girls carry maize home on their heads from a small farm where they work in exchange for the food June 29, 2002 in the village of Chipumi, Malawi. Droughts and flooding within the past year has caused many Malawians to be unable to purchase seeds to grow their own food and, as a result, are suffering from malnutrition because of the ongoing food shortage in the region. The World Food Program estimates that approximately 3.2 million people in Malawi alone will be affected before March 2003. U.S. lawmakers expressed support for helping southern Africa avert a famine that threatens nearly 13 million people. The lawmakers also accused regional leaders of aggravating the food crisis originally caused by floods and drought. (Photo by Ami Vitale/Getty Images)
