WFP stepping up operation in Niger

Published on 27 April 2010

A Rome food agency says it is seeking to step up its operation in Niger and feed 2.3 million people-more than twice the number it previously helped. The World Food Program said Monday it was acting in response to continued drought in the eastern Sahel desert, which has destroyed harvests and scorched pastures, worsening the food crisis.
