CONTROL WORK № 6

Variant 1

READING

TEXT 1

1. Read the text and decide whether the statements (1–7) are True (T) or False (F).

 

1) It is easy to find food for people in the countries of “The Third World”.

2) People of the countries of “The Third World” prefer to live in the resettle-ments camps.

3)Nowadays, with modern kinds of transport it is very easy to supply food to the outlying areas.

4) The aid given to the countries of “The Third World” is not enough to save them from hunger.

5) The charity organizations give any available money to the countries where people die from hunger.

6) Many thousands of people have escaped from the camps and returned to their desert homeland.

7) The conditions for living in the camps are perfect.

 

FOOD FOR AFRICA

People in Ethiopia and other parts of Africa are dying in huge numbers for the simple reason that they are not getting enough to eat. One of the rea-sons for this is that lush and fertile areas have become desert-like because of drought, overpopulation, and bad farming. People in such areas are being ‘re-settled’ and, in the meantime may spend months, if not years, in resettlement camps. Finding enough food to feed people in camps has become a night-mare. Even worse is the fact that many thousands of people have escaped and returned to their desert homeland because of the wretched conditions in the camps, and because they fear being moved further on. It is vital that money must be found to finance the transport of food to these outlying areas, not ac-cessible by normal transport. This means airplanes that can dump sacks of grain much nearer to the scattered villages where people need them.

At the moment, the mountain inhabitants have to walk fifty kilometers once a month to collect their dry rations, which are barely enough to feed their families anyway. More and more people are so undernourished that they are dying on the way.

The organization, Concern, strongly believes that this is where any available money should go right now: to the resettlement areas and to the people who are refusing to leave their traditional homelands. We believe that first things come first, and that your money makes the difference between life and death.
