Living through the West Africa crisis
Food crisis in Niger
The 2011 harvest was disastrous for Mintou and her family. With seven months until the next harvest, Mintou ran out of food to feed her five grandchildren. The family lived through the 2012 food crisis that affected millions of people across the Sahel region of West Africa.
Hamani, Ramatu, Aissa and Imam went through similar experiences in the Dosso and Niamey regions of Niger. Their touching stories are also featured in the photo gallery below.
Our supporters helped us deliver emergency aid to communities across the region, and provided resources for communities to build their resilience for future crises. Read more at West Africa – from food crisis to resilience.
