Food crisis - Niger, Mali and Mauritania - West Africa..

The terror attacks have overshadowed a recent starvation crisis in West Africa.

Severe drought, together with an invasion of locusts, have devastated crops and plunged huge parts of West Africa into crisis, particularly Niger, Mali and Mauritania.

In Niger alone, more than three million people are facing starvation - 800,000 of them are children. Drought is also beginning to affect huge areas of Southern Africa as well.

Oxfam is there

Oxfam is already reaching 130,000 people in Niger, and others across the region.

Lives are being saved, but the scale of the catastrophe is enormous. With your help, we can reach more people.
