As the food crisis in Niger threatens to spread to neighbouring Burkina Faso, Mali and Mauritania, millions of people are facing extreme food shortages.

UK-based charity TREE AID has supported the planting of nearly six million trees in the affected Sahel region of Africa including Burkina Faso and Mali.
