Food crisis in West Africa

The Sahel region of West and Central Africa is in the grip of a food crisis. Oxfam and our partner organizations are working throughout the region to get help to struggling communities.

As the food crisis intensifies, families in hard-hit areas are employing desperate measures to find food, like foraging in anthills for bits of edible grain. Oxfam and our partners are improving access to food and clean water, while also helping livestock survive the crisis.
