report Concern Worldwide

NIGER is just one of about 15 African countries facing major food problems over the coming months. According to Tom Arnold, chief executive officer of Concern Worldwide, the lives and livelihoods of 30 million people are at risk. Every 30 seconds an African child dies of hunger.

Niger, one of the world's poorest countries where 60 per cent of the 11.5m population live on $1 a day, is only the tip of the iceberg. African countries in which Concern is working are facing into food crises of a staggering scale. Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya, Burundi and Somalia are in difficulty.

report CARE

CARE International is working in Niger and across Africa to address food shortages, help people combat the impact of drought, and improve food production.

Nearly a dozen countries in Africa are facing severe food shortages this year. The UN estimates that more than 30 million people in East, West and Southern Africa will need food aid in coming months.

In Niger, CARE is delivering food and seeds to thousands of starving families, and has been preparing for this crisis since last year.
