Appeal for Humanitarian Aid  

 

This year the Sahel region of West Africa is confronting a catastrophic hunger crisis. An estimated 15.6 million people are facing food insecurity and more than a million children are suffering from acute malnutrition. Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Algeria have already declared states of emergency and have requested international assistance. The Holy Father has appealed to the international community to respond and the Canadian Catholic Organization of Development and Peace has initiated an emergency campaign in Canada.
