The toughest choice

"Mulu calculated that she could afford to care for one more child back in Addis Ababa, but which to choose.

"They were all so skinny; they were all the same," Mulu said, seated in her living room.

She chose the youngest, not necessarily the sickest, but her favourite. With a drought and a scarcity of food from the global food crisis leaving millions destitute and even starving, Ethiopia is faced with similar dilemma.

"Life is terrible there, but I have no choice," she said. " (Thanks Marcy)
