Visiting Niger - the Sahel food crisis response

I arrived in Niger in the early hours of this morning, Tuesday 10 August, after a stop-over in Casablanca (on transit) from Dakar.
Niger and most parts of the Sahel are suffering from a major food crisis, with close to 8 million people affected in Niger alone! This is a real natural disaster - resulting from failed harvest due to drought.
The World Food Programme and its humanitarian partners are in the midst of a massive emergency operation to save lives of those affected by this crisis.

This happens to be my second visit to Niger this year, as part of support towards this humanitarian response.

Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
Words cannot describe the emptiness.
There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
