2.3 million people living in Niger still depend on humanitarian aid says UN

According to the UN, around 10 per cent of the population of this West African country, requires humanitarian aid to survive.

Conflict, climate change and the arrival of refugees from neighboring countries have all combined to drive up the number of people who are not getting enough to eat, in what is already one of the world’s poorest nations.

But now, the Nigerien government, with the support of UN agencies, is helping the most vulnerable people.

The UN humanitarian agency’s Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, recently Ursula Mueller, recently travelled to Niger to meet some of the those who are benefitting.
