THE HUNGER CRISIS IN AFRICA

 Learn how drought, war and HIV/AIDS have put more than 40 million people on the frontline of Africa’s hunger crisis.

The Africa Hunger Alert campaign was launched on 16 December 2002 as a global response to efforts to help over 40 million victims of the vast hunger crisis gripping the African continent.

After the launching of the campaign, spontaneous initiatives sprang up across the world in schools, colleges and community groups. There were vigils for the hungry, fund-raising events and letters sent to national governments urging action.

This page highlights the African countries which are currently suffering exceptional food shortages.
