More than 30 million people in need of food aid
While members of the G8 gather today in Scotland to discuss whether or not to help Africa, 3.6 million people in Niger are walking the slow road to starvation. The worst locust infestation in 15 years decimated crops through west and central Africa, and a worsening drought has withered any remaining harvest.
This is the Africa being discussed at this week's conference, where drought and food shortages are problems that many Africans face every day.
