+++ On July 26, 2023, the military seized power in a coup d'état. One month after the military coup in Niger, Welthungerhilfe calls for urgent humanitarian aid to be made accessible to the suffering population. +++ Niger, a desert country in Africa, is one of the poorest countries in the world. A quickly-growing population is being confronted by long droughts and food crises time and time again. Approximately one-fifth of the population suffers from malnutrition. For several years, the situation has been exacerbated by attacks from the radical Islamist militia Boko Haram, which is currently active on both sides of the border with Nigeria. Welthungerhilfe has been working in Niger since 2010.
