Niger hunger crisis: far from over

The UN recently made the claim that the hunger crisis in Niger is under control, but as more than half of the country is reported hungry, it is clear there is still much to be done.
Aid workers are scrambling to try and provide the 8 million Niger people with sustenance, but it is not an easy feat.

Food production is extremely low and as wages drop, food prices continue to rise. An estimated 100,000 Niger people are homeless, and disease is also a major concern.

It is said that children are suffering most as almost one in five children do not live to their fifth birthday. Save The Children has set a goal of raising £500,000 to give goats and sheep for the 5,000 poorest families. Too learn more visit www.savethechildren.org.uk.
