Niger’s complicated hunger crisis

The annual hunger season is beginning once again in the vast, arid strip of land just below the Sahara desert, and the medics at Ouallam - a small town an hour’s drive north of Niger’s capital Niamey - have seen a sudden leap in admissions in the past week and are bracing themselves for an exceptionally tough few months before October’s harvest.
The United Nations’ World Food Programme expects that almost 400,000 children in Niger could find themselves so malnourished that they end up like those in Ouallam’s hospital. Nearly one in 10 are likely to die as a result.
