Hunger Season Has Arrived: So What are We Doing?

Hunger season has arrived in the Sahel region of West Africa, where millions of people are at risk of food insecurity each year. This year, the U.N. estimates that 20 million people—nearly 13 percent of the region’s population—will be at risk of hunger and will lack enough food for a healthy and productive life.

"The participants will have the opportunity to learn simple methods that can be used even in situations where the resources available for treating this kind of injury are very limited."
