Right now in the Sahel, over 18 million people are directly affected by a growing food crisis. This means that despite months of warning by agencies like Save the Children, today millions of children are at risk of going hungry, and parents are struggling to feed their children.
Save the Children’s analysis shows that the worst is yet to come – June marks the beginning of the peak lean season in much of the Sahel, and in the hardest-hit areas, the poorest families are going without 80% of what they need to survivein the coming months. The grim reality is, these families and these children will not survive the coming months without help.
Thank you so much,
Save the Children
