The Niger government says that at least 3.5 million people are suffering from food shortages and 150,000 children are severely malnourished in the regions of Tahoua, Maradi and Zinder.
Experienced Emergency Response Teams from Muslim Hands Sudan (Darfur) and Muslim Hands Gambia are working with local partners to establish feeding centres in southern Niger and Mali and to immediately drill water boreholes.
Muslim Hands has already allocated =A3100,000 to the crisis and funding of food distribution began this week, but much more is needed. Please donate generously.
