Headline: AFRICA/BURKINA FASO – Forgotten crisis: 2.2 million people risk starvation

Ouagadougou – In the coming months, over 2.2 million burkinabés are at risk of starving due to ongoing conflicts and extreme climatic conditions . In 2020, the number of people affected by the serious shortage of food is three times higher than last year. The emergency was launched, in a message to Agenzia Fides, by Father Constatin Sere, director of Caritas Burkina Faso, who declares: “the world has forgotten the crisis in the Sahel. Countries like Burkina Faso face a series of challenges and without help people will suffer terribly. Internally displaced people do not have access to food or water, which is essential for both drinking and personal hygiene”.
