Southern Africa Food Crisis Overview
THE FOOD CRISIS
Because Southern Africa has received little to no rainfall in the past six months, thousands of rural families already contending with food shortages are now facing a dire situation. In communities where World Relief works, crops are failing and livestock are dying at a rapid rate. Currently up to 4 million people in Malawi and 1.5 million in Mozambique in need of immediate assistance.
The crisis is hitting other countries hard as well. Malawi, for example, is already an under-resourced and food-insecure region, particularly vulnerable to a food shortages. At this critical time, these individuals and families desperately need assistance. And because of World Relief’s established partnerships and programs in these regions, we have the ability to assist them.
