WFP West Africa Newsletter April 2014

A FORGOTTEN CRISIS IN THE SAHEL

WFP is concerned that a lack of funds could compromise efforts to support households in the Sahel, where many are still recovering from the crisis in 2012.

DAKAR- Two years ago, when the Sahel endured one of the most serious food crises in its history, we all stepped up. Humanitarian organizations provided vital support to populations in crisis, thanks to the extraordinary mobilization of governments, partners on the ground, and the international community, who listened and responded quickly to our appeal.

When the gusts push from north to south and the swells off the Libyan coast are animated, asylum-seekers remain hidden in small houses with their smugglers.
