Video cassettes focus on African starvation


The city school system is distributing video cassettes explaining the reasons some 20 million Africans are suffering from malnourishment and starvation.

The cassettes are issued with teachers' lesson guides so they can be used in city and county school classrooms. Distribution of the tapes is tied to the Walk Against Hunger in Africa, scheduled Oct. 26.

The walk is sponsored by Baltimore Clergy and Laity Concerned and co-sponsored by Fox 45 WBFF-TV, radio station WXYV-FM V-103 and the Baltimore Times newspaper.

Africare, Catholic Relief Services, Church World Service and UNICEF will distribute money raised by the walk.

For more information on the walk, call 962-8333, or visit the offices of Baltimore Clergy and Laity Concerned, 10 E. Mount Vernon Place.
