"Some of Africa's best-known musicians are working together to fight famine and pressure their governments, accused of standing by while millions on the continent face starvation, to pitch in. Africans Act 4 Africa, launched today, aims to put pressure on African governments to fund relief for a crisis on their own turf. The group’s organizers hope to raise awareness through social media and media coverage, prompting leaders to step up to help the 12 million Kenyans, Somalis, and Ethiopians urgently needing food aid."
