25,000 North Korean Kids Are Starving

More than 25,000 North Korean children are in need of immediate treatment for malnutrition, following a severe drought that has cut food production by 20 percent in the Hermit Kingdom, according to the UN’s children’s fund. Government-imposed rations have led UNICEF to seek donations of $18 million or more to aid its assistance efforts. An estimated 3.5 million North Koreans died in widespread famine conditions there in the 1990s.
