"Drought in the Sahel region of West Africa has brought hunger to millions of people for the third time in recent years. Meanwhile, conflict in Mali has forced at least 300,000 people to flee their homes, adding to the hunger crisis both in Mali and neighbouring countries. WFP and its partners have launched a regional response to bring food assistance to more than 9 million people in eight countries." World Food Programme

Put pressure on politicians to end hunger. Sign the petition, and push for action wherever you are.


"The Sahel is the ecoclimatic and biogeographic zone of transition between the Sahara desert in the North and the Sudanian Savannas in the south. It stretches across the north of the African continent between the Atlantic Ocean and the Red Sea. The Arabic word sāḥil ساحلliterally means "shore, coast", describing the appearance of the vegetation of the Sahel as a coastline delimiting the sand of the Sahara.
The Sahel covers parts of the territory of (from west to east) Northern Senegal, southern part of MauritaniaMali, southern part of Algeria,NigerChad, southern part of Sudan and Eritrea. It is bordered on the north by the Sahara and on the south by the less arid savannah." Wikipedia
