Working for Food

April 15, 2002

Re your April 11 photo, "A Fight Against Famine": Since when does the U.N. make famished people work for their 4 1/2 pounds of grain? I was appalled to see this photo of North Koreans--starving people--piling up dirt for food. It looked pathetic and like "make work" to me, and no better than slavery. I hope that The Times can follow up on this issue with further reporting on the policies of food distribution by the U.N. and in particular an explanation of the South Pyongan situation.
