I'm pretty sure I know the author of this article, even though Christianity Today withheld his name for his protection. Please take the time to read it -- it describes the current state of desperation in the former-bread-basket-of-Africa, and also provides hope and a challenge for residents of this broken country.

Here’s the opening paragraph; it’s a good read – I’d encourage you to take the time to read it and pass it on to others.

Over the last five years, I have preached often from Habakkuk. I stress the
fallenness of our world and the need to be realistic about human wickedness. But
Habakkuk also stresses that history demands a judgment. If God is just, there
must be a judgment one day — maybe not in this life but certainly in the life to
come. God's answer to our struggles with evil and evil men and women in this
world is, "The righteous will live by faith — our loyalty to God in spite of the
godlessness of others." We're getting lots of practice.
