ABC News Continues its Reporting “A Cry For Help: Disaster in the Desert” Across Broadcasts and Platforms

ABC News weekend anchor David Muir is back in Somalia this week to report on the worsening humanitarian crisis in the Horn of Africa. The famine there has worsened significantly over the past several weeks and now one more nightmare faces the population and aid workers – a growing measles epidemic among children. The U.N. has said that the famine is killing more than a hundred children each day in Somalia. Muir traveled to Kenya and Somalia earlier this summer. He was the first American correspondent to report on the famine from inside Somalia.

During this trip, Muir will be visiting a hospital and a pair of UNHCR camps treating those who’ve fled the famine zones. In addition, he will travel with the African troops charged with ensuring the safety of food and aid deliveries and spend time with UNICEF on the front lines of this crisis in both Somalia and Kenya. Reports will air on “World News with Diane Sawyer,” “Good Morning America,” and “Nightline.”
