Five more ways to help the Horn of Africa

While the world community finally mobilizes to secure funding to provide aid to the people of the Horn of Africa, I wanted to provide the readers with five more recommendations (in addition to the five from an earlier post) for how you can donate directly to relief efforts.

I also encourage you to send me links to any other aid agencies that are working in the region. I will include them in future posts.
