International Aid Group Calls for Urgent Action in Niger Food Crisis

Published on 30 July 2010

The U.N. World Food Program has extended food aid to eight million people in Niger, but aid workers say the program still needs funding and assistance may come too late for some families hit by severe food shortages. International aid workers say a deepening food crisis is threatening 10 million people across the eastern Sahel, including seven million people in Niger.
