In Kenya, four million people are facing hunger due to severe drought. A New Zealand dog food manufacturer offered to donate 6,000 emergency packs of dog food mixture to help feed Kenyan orphans. A Kenyan government spokesman said: "We appreciate the offer, but we dismiss it as culturally insulting."Their source is the following BBC article.
I imagine this article will garner some divided views from you guys, so what do you think? Is cultural pride interfering with social welfare or is it worth sacrificing a relatively small amount of food to maintain the dignity of their people?
