For the first time, the UN World Food Program is appealing to private citizens and organizations for donations to fight hunger in Africa. Some 38 million Africans risk starvation, a situation the Rome-based agency blames on shifting climate conditions, the AIDS epidemic, and, in some countries, political instability and failed economic policies. The UNWFP, which in the past last largely relied on government donations, will launch an appeal campaign aimed at non-governmental groups on Dec. 16.
