A few days after his release from a juvenile boot camp in Saugus, Luis Ramos got some life-changing advice. A teacher told the 15-year-old Panorama City boy to check out New Directions for Youth, a Van Nuys community service organization where he could take classes and get counseling. He did, and two months later, Luis says, he's ready to give back to the place that provided him with much needed support.

Grieving families of children who died in the tsunami are taking in orphans of the disaster without approval, a move denounced Friday by the government and an aid organization. An official from the Department of Child Care and Protection, speaking on condition of anonymity, said he had heard of a dozen cases in Galle and Matara, on Sri Lanka's southern coast, in which orphaned children had been taken in by families that had lost loved ones. He asked families to stop.

I commend your editorial ("The Sorrows of Somalia," Aug. 5). The U.N., as our agent for compassion in the war-torn regions of Europe and the Horn of Africa, cannot allow either/or thinking to stop lifesaving aid from entering Somalia through the Mogadishu airport. Thanks also for the three-part series by Michael Dorris (Commentary, Aug. 3-5) on his experience in Zimbabwe. Save the Children, the organization of which Dorris is a board member, was our host during a similar mission in Ethiopia.

The Serrano Elementary School third-grade class of Cathi Budd donated a rocking chair for the nursery at Fountain Valley Regional Hospital after learning about drug-addicted babies during a drug-awareness program. Registered nurse Kathy Ankenman spoke to the children. The students raised $200 by selling 50-cent tickets to a drawing for a 30-square quilt with each square offering an alternative to drugs.

In response to an urgent request from the government of Ethiopia, the United States agreed Friday to send 115,000 tons of emergency food aid to help stave off a famine that officials say threatens to be as severe as that which devastated the nation two years ago. The shipment, at a cost of $37.6 million, will supply one-eighth of the total food that Ethiopian and U.S. officials agree will be necessary next year to feed those threatened by a widespread drought.

Their playground is a sandy, fly-infested yard, their bed a dingy foam mattress on a concrete floor. Their bath is a tin pail or plastic bucket that they wash in outside. When hunger bites, there is typically little or nothing to eat. It is a wretched existence for Nymah Sumo, 7, and Doretha Rubben, 6, who live at a squalid children's home in this battle-scarred capital. But it is an existence they hope to soon escape.
