    Somali charities in the UK are putting their different agendas aside and pooling their resources for the famine-hit country.

    London's money-transfer offices are busy. And remittances to the worst-hit areas of Somalia are up 10 per cent.

    These efforts are a lifeline for the starving people; but not enough to end a 21st century famine.
