"Action Against Hunger, a global humanitarian organization working in Niger to combat the crisis, has a new photo gallery detailing its activities in the country, including therapeutic nutrition programs for severely malnourished children, “cash-for-work” and “training-for-work” programs, and a range of water, sanitation, and hygiene programs to reduce the risk of malnutrition and malnutrition-related diseases."

"They are all part of Action Against Hunger’s campaign to get even the youngest citizens involved in the clamor. 'We want to get them while they’re young, get them thinking about something beyond their own worlds,' says Barbara McKinnon of Action Against Hunger’s school campaign.

"According to humanitarian agency Action Against Hunger, the government estimated that nearly one million children are moderately malnourished and another 200,000 have severe acute malnutrition, a life-threatening condition. Even if those children survive, their physical and mental development will likely be as stunted as the nation’s. The government assessment showed that, at the beginning of the year, household foodstocks had already been depleted for about 20% of the population.
