Today’s Photo: Sahel Food Crisis
Thank you to Oxfam International for their efforts to reach hundreds of thousands displaced by conflict in Mali and for bringing this story to international light.
“The entrenchment of armed groups and the spread of instability has led to increased humanitarian suffering across the region. The human impact is evident in the 170,000 people displaced within Mali and 250,000 displaced across the region, as well as in the vulnerable communities struggling to host them.” –Oxfam International.
In Burkina Faso, Oxfam aims to reach nearly 300,000 people, including over 75,000 refugees, with water, public health assistance, animal health and food programs and more. Follow Oxfam’s response to the Sahel food crisis.
