“Me and my family stayed in Zamalka during the fighting. I love my bike and I used it to go to my father's shop even when there were sounds of fighting. In the future, I want to be a butcher like my father.” 8-year-old Abdullah in Eastern Ghouta, #Syria.

How much do you know about the humanitarian crisis in the Sahel?
.
#BurkinaFaso #Niger #Chad #Mali #Mauritania
.
👉🏼Twelve million people are facing a worsening humanitarian crisis in the Sahel region. 👉🏼Communities are living with armed violence, poverty and a chronic food crisis. 👉🏼Access to water has dropped 40% in the last 20 years. It’s become harder and harder to farm, which is devastating for those who depend on agriculture and livestock to survive.
.
The crisis continues to worsen. Follow our work there - link in profile.

During the rainy season, roads become impassable, but air drops get food to where it’s needed most.
