  1. -12-01-05 Malawi Poverty and Disease: Half Face Starvation (CNN News)
      "This is one of the world's 10 poorest countries; life expectancy is a mere 37 years; two-thirds of the population live on less than a dollar a day; one in six adults is HIV positive, and nearly half the population of 12 million faces starvation in coming months if help doesn't arrive soon."

      "That's 5 million people, which is half the population of London or New York City."

      "Malawi is in deep trouble after a fourth straight season of failed rains, which made farmlands and fields bone dry. November was supposed to usher in the rainy season -- but the skies were a clear blue and no clouds are in sight."

      "The majority of Malawians are subsistence farmers - and they are crying out for help."
