“The Face Of Hunger: Reflections On A Famine In Ethiopia”: a gripping and educational look at the horrors of the Ethiopian famine, and the love and positive situations birthed from it. “The Face Of Hunger: Reflections On A Famine In Ethiopia” is the creation of published author, Byron Conner, M.D., Army Veteran, medical doctor, father, and missionary.
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Byron Conner, M.D.’s new book explains how a compelling presentation of a devastating humanitarian crisis on television propelled Dr. Conner and his wife and two children on a missionary trip to Ethiopia. The crisis was a famine in Ethiopia which threatened the lives of many thousands of Ethiopian citizens. It has been estimated that four hundred thousand to five hundred thousand souls perished due to the famine in 1983–1985, and millions were made destitute.
A robust international response was mounted to assist the people of Ethiopia, and many relief and humanitarian organizations responded with food, clothing, blankets, and medication; along with logistical and medical teams to respond to the crisis.
For Dr. Conner and his wife, the service in Ethiopia 1984–1987 was the beginning of a new way of life in community outreach and ministry. Despite leaving the mission field after the period of service, they still considered themselves missionaries but, to their own country of America. This book is a presentation of the service abroad and the aftermath.
