        Ask a drought victim in Ethiopia

        This is a rare chance to chat online with drought victims in Ethiopia. Here you can get the information on how to use your laptop/PC to get first-hand information from villagers affected by the current drought. They will be answering questions the whole day on April 6. So hook up with them, and learn what it is like to live in a drought stricken village in Ethiopia.

        Thanks BBC!

          although it's ironic we can do a live laptop link but we can't solve the drought

          Drought is not as sexy as lap top inter linking, and solving drought doesn't given instant gratification. It will also entail things getting ugly politically before drought is solved. I agree with you, Modernemama, it is ironic.

        Kamilat - victim of acid burning The face of VAW - violence against women. It should and can be stopped with enough commitment. Helping one woman at a time is a start.
