Irish Rock Star Bob Geldof Looks at Child Living with AIDS
Irish rock star Bob Geldof (L) looks at Biniam Alemu, a malnourished two-year-old boy living with AIDS, as he is held by his mother at Dilla hospital, 360kms from the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa. Millions of people in the region depend on relief food after four years of recurrent drought which has wiped out much of their food and livestock. Geldof, who organized the world's biggest rock concert in 1985 to help Africa's starving, is visiting Ethiopia to highlight a looming humanitarian crisis. Aid agencies estimate 14 million Ethiopians are at risk of starvation after the worst drought in nearly two decades. | Location: Dilla, Ethiopia.
