Humphrey School hosts discussion on foreign aid, famine in Africa.
The event at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs brought star power to bear on a humanitarian crisis that Shah said has meant malnutrition for 12.4 million people and death for more than 30,000 Somali children. Besides Shah, the forum's panelists included U.S. Reps. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Tim Walz (DFL-MN). Pelosi said the forum followed on well-attended meetings of members of Congress on African famine that came days after Congress adjourned Aug. 3.
