Kenya: dog food for children

White African points to a story in Yahoo News that a New Zealand woman planned to send dog food to “Kenya's starving children“.He asks if this story is possible?…”The Kenya National Commission on Human Rights condemned the offer as a degrading assault on the dignity of the country’s children.”

    HONESTLY THIS SUGGESTION IS DEGRADING! Surely if the individual feels like helping she could sell the dogs’ food and send the money for the purchase of food for human beings!
