Eighteen million people in Africa are threatened by the worst food catastrophe in a decade.
In the next three months, 18 million people in the Sahel area of Africa risk acute starvation, according to the United Nations. Since 2014, a more significant number of individuals are at danger of acute hunger across the region. Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, and Niger are confronting “alarming levels” of food insecurity. Parts of the Sahel are seeing their lowest agricultural output in over a decade.
