Food Shortage

Browsing the bbc news site I found this article about the food crisis in Niger. Has anyone out there heard of the country Niger before? Not Nigeria...Niger, different country. We spent 1 year there in 2000 to 2001 and I found this article so sad. We've been to Maradi and in fact SIM has a large base there working in agriculture and church planting so it's very sad to hear about how many are dying from a lack of food.

Michael with some kids at a school near Maradi. These kids will be ok as they are in an SIM based school but it's kids like these that are dying there.

This is the landscape, very dry, nothing much grows there.
